Logical Fallacy: Bandwagon Appeal

Our group decided to choose the bandwagon appeal, which is one of the logical fallacies that exist. The definition of fallacy is basically a false/misleading form of argument. The definition of bandwagon appeal is the assumption that what the majority beliefs is right, therefore one must conform, jump aboard and obtain the same beliefs in order to fit in. 

Tip: One shouldn’t feel obligated to fit in with the crowd. Rather we recommend that you break free from the mold and be yourself.
