  1. A fad is a type of clothing or activity that is considered very popular for a short time then is soon after forgotten. An example of a fad is Pokémon go because wherever you would go you’d see someone playing it, but only a few months later people have totally forgotten about it.

  3. A fad is something that will have mass appeal from almost out of nowhere and die out just as fast. Fads are hard too see coming and once they start many different companies will try and recreate the product to catch the wave the fad is creating. A past fad is baggie denim jeans. Jeans like these were all the rage in the early 2000’s made popular by rappers. This year one of the biggest fads was pokemon go. When it released it made huge waves and almost everyone was playing it however after a few months the game has basically died off.

  4. Fads are a temporary fashion that at some point was talked about especially one followed enthusiastically by a group. They don’t last very long though. Some examples can be Kanye Wests fashion and his shoes, Yeezys that get sold out in seconds. Also the Kardashians and their trendy style is a big fad toward society today especially Kylie Jenner and her lip kips, which also get sold out in seconds.

  16. A fad can be defined as something that becomes extremely popular in a short period of time, and then it is forgotten at about the same speed. For the most part, they don’t fullfil any of the consumer’s needs, and after they lose their popularity, they’re just carried by extreme followers of the fad.
    Some examples of fads from the past are: the rubik’s cube, heelys, afros, silly bands, leg warmers, neon clothing, baggy pants, etc.
    Currently, social media has a strong effect in the creation of fads. An example of this is the social platform called Vine, which has contribute to making some dance moves and songs extremely popular for a short period of time.

  18. A fad is a product that was pretty popular at a time and everyone knows about it and talks about it but isn’t anymore. some characteristics include a short life cycle and grows very quickly and then reaches its decision point later. A current fad would be a Hoverboard because everyone is talking about it and its very popular because its something new not only to the society but to technology and everyone thought it was amazing but its suddenly less popular and soon enough will become a fad.

  22. Fads, can be described as a product or service that is hugely popular for a relativity short period of time and does not have a product extension path to develop itself for the future. They are usually directed purposely towards a certain demographic or group in order for the product to be as popular as possible. A fad usually is a product that is cheap and or in high supply which makes them sell quickly and at a low price that everyone will purchase without hesitation. A fad such as a tech deck for example, was hugely popular for my age group when we were in grade 4-6, and they were something that many boys (and some girls) were hooked on buying as they were entertaining and fun to fiddle with. They were a small skateboard that was controlled with your fingers and could fit into a pocket easily, and they featured many real skate brands that included signature styles and models from real life pro skateboarders. the small and portable size allowed for you to whip out your board in public and throw down some rad tricks in an instant! The types of Fads that people are attracted to change as they get older and things that interest them change. A fad from the now is probably Adidas shoes, as the Yeezys, Ultra boosts, and NMDs are all super popular shoes that everyone wants right now, they can be seen as a bit of a fashion statement or as a way of people simply trying to try and copy Kanye Wests style. I happen to have a pair of Ultraboosts however and they are the comfiest shoes that I have ever put on my feet, so props to Adidas for creating a fad that may last longer than others from the past.
