Public Relations and Advertising

With public relations and advertising, they have very similar goals. However, they do serve different purposes. For one, public relations is solely to hype up a person or an object so that they look good. For example, publicizing how Chris Brown is doing charity after saying outrageous comments on Instagram, is an example of showing the public the good in people to cover up controversy. On the other hand, in advertising, people basically brag on themselves or an event in order to garner interest for others to want to come out. Making advertisements about Coca-Cola, for example, is all about hyping up how Coco-Cola is the superior soda. The ways the two are alike is that they both focus on the positives of an object. The main purpose of these two is to make people want to go out to an event or to gain attention to a person in a positive light.
