HOW DECEPTIVE ADVERTISEMENTS ARE USED BY EDUCATIONAL MANIPULATORS

On the Internet, any person can claim to be an "expert" in educational affairs; however, these people are mostly “experts” of nothing, or hired to promote interests of other companies or organizations, regardless of any truth...  

Appearance of the Internet created endless number of websites and web blogs, where people without any formal education are offering uneducated “opinions” that they are attempting to present as so-called "expert-opinions"; but these "opinions" and "recommendations" usually are originating from the people with very low level of education and some have no education at all.  

Internet became a "breeding ground" for people that are ready to sell any so-called "opinions" (usually false opinions) and to do anything for just a few dollars. These people are polluting Internet with their deceptive recommendations of expensive educational places.  

Very often, these imaginary “experts” with deceptive "opinions" are only paid agents hired by some entities to promote their financial interests. Deceptive promotions of high-cost education are going to the extreme levels when, very often, these paid agents are defaming legitimate places only to divert attention of readers to the websites of places that these paid promoters are trying to promote. This form of psychological manipulation achieved by continually telling one group of people that something is ​true when in reality, it can be false; and ​by preventing any other ​information from ​reaching people subjected to this form of psychological abuse (brainwashing).

We would not recommend to believe in any self-promotions (or paid promotions) that are posted on the Internet. Internet is suitable mostly for gathering of general information. Any “opinions” appearing on the Internet, in most cases, are representing only a form of concealed advertisement offered by paid promoters. Proliferation of advertising deception on the Internet is overwhelming.

It is very surprising to see that even people with Master’s and Doctoral degrees are easily deceived by the Internet manipulators (that very often never even completed secondary level of education and never had any educational degrees). Educational manipulators are pretending to be an “experts” in higher education and they are "selling" their deceptive “opinions” by working for the to the “highest bidders” (whoever pays for that deception). These forms of misleading advertisements often presented on the websites that are describing educational degrees and websites that are offering educational discussions.

Educational websites and educational discussions' forums are usually the places, where educational manipulators are concentrating. Educational manipulators are often posting own questions on education discussions' forums and are answering their own questions with hidden agenda to advertise expensive forms of education. These promoters are ready to sell anything, disregarding the fact that some people may incorrectly assume that whatever promoters are telling is "true", when in reality, it is only a form of concealed advertisements that very often misleading and deceptive. It gets to the level of plain illegality, when these promoters in their cheap and demeaning efforts to misdirect visitors, are posting defamatory statements about one educational place only to direct visitors to promoters’ pages where they are advertising expensive forms of education (or to the websites of people or organizations that hired these promoters). After posting defamatory statements about other educational places, these manipulators non-aggressively suggesting places that they were hired to advertise, and are claiming that such places (places that they are advertising) are better. Considering the fact that these advertisers (with deceptive and false "opinions") are paid for the services, they always are suggesting places that are much more expensive comparing to places that these manipulators are trying to defame. These people with their deceptive “opinions” only can suggest places that would help naïve visitors to depart from thousands of dollars that these people never had.

There also is non-aggressive form of concealed advertisements. Website owners and managers are not directly attacking other colleges and universities, but are describing universities and different forms of accreditations for universities; and at the same time are using their website as a place to host advertisements from selected expensive universities. On websites that are hosting advertisements from expensive universities, website owners are describing universities that people must select (and they are using the same characteristics as universities advertised on their pages) and what kind of accreditations these universities must have (and they are describing accrediting organizations used by universities advertised on their pages). These people are only describing places that are paying largest advertising fees to these website owners; and in most cases, only expensive universities that are charging students high tuition fees.

Obviously, these people are not educated enough or conveniently “forgetting” that accreditations for universities are nothing more, but only a second opinion originating from people involved in educational affairs; and any organization (as provided by the United States laws) can be involved in educational accreditations (not only a few the most expensive accrediting organizations).    

Paid manipulators are not educated enough or conveniently “forgetting” that there are no any official requirements (as provided by the United States laws) for universities in the United States to be accredited by any organization.    

Manipulators also are not educated enough or conveniently “forgetting” that the U.S. Department of Education (as provided by the United States laws) has no any legal power or authority to perform any “approvals” or educational recognitions for universities or for accrediting organizations.  

The U.S. Department of Education only entitled to regulate accrediting organizations that are providing accreditations for universities that are accepting educational loans and other forms of financial assistance issued by the U.S. federal government. If universities are not accepting any monies from the federal government, such universities have no need to possess any accreditation, or to be accredited by the accreditation agencies that have contract [approved] with the U.S. Department of Education.

All these matters clearly provided in the United States laws, but advertising manipulators would never tell it.  

Moreover, these manipulators are not educated enough or conveniently “forgetting” that there are no “better” or “worst” accrediting organizations, because each accrediting organization has exactly the same legal right to accredit any educational institution that they are considering to be deserving such accreditation (as provided by the United States laws).  

Basics of social psychology are still the same - never ask strangers for any recommendations or for any advice... If any person has any questions, this person must use own level of intelligence, instead of asking questions on web blogs and other similar places. Paid promoters and agitators just waiting for the naïve people who would start asking questions, so these people can offer their so-called “recommendations” for places that hired these manipulators...
