Pop Culture 2017 Trends


Wiki source

Popular culture (also called pop culture) is generally recognized by members of a society as a set of the practices, beliefs, and objects that are dominant or ubiquitous in a society at a given point in time. Popular culture also encompasses the activities and feelings produced as a result of interaction with these dominant objects. Heavily influenced in modern times by mass media, this collection of ideas permeates the everyday lives of people in a given society. Therefore, popular culture has a way of influencing an individual's attitudes towards certain topics. However, there are various ways to define pop culture. Because of this, popular culture is considered[by whom?] an empty conceptual category, or something that can be defined in a variety of conflicting ways by different people across different contexts. It is generally defined[by whom?] in contrast to other forms of culture such as mass culture, folk culture, working-class culture, or high culture, and also through different theoretical perspectives such as psychoanalysis, structuralism, postmodernism, and more. The most common pop-culture categories are: entertainment (such as movies, music, television, and video games), sports, news (as in people/places in the news), politics, fashion/clothes, technology, and slang.
