The Generation Z – people in the age group of 12 to 24 years – is termed as the catalysts of the Cultural Revolution. An infographic from Wildness, a market research firm has studied the attitude of this generation as the culture creators, culture changes, culture consumers and culture collaborators. The study finds that about 80% people of generation Z use social media daily. As being the first post-internet generation, they set a trend in utilizing social media platform. In the US alone teenagers are the largest consumers of the social media states another report by Mary Meeker’s with 74% using Facebook.

The infographic also highlights that currently, 35% of the global population falls in this age group. Considering these are the active consumer of the internet as well as social media, it’s important for brand marketers to lure such people.

This generation also defines the cultural currency to be the uniqueness and authenticity. Some of the highlights of the infographic are listed below:

  • Over 65% of this group enjoys creating and sharing content using social media while 20% of post original essay or poem weekly once.
  • The generation plays an important role when it comes to video content. People from the group post an original video at least once in a week, on the contrary, 26% adults have ever posted a video.

With this, the group stands to be unique in terms of what they create, consume, and make it. Definitely, they account for a lion’s share of online consumption, yet it is a selective consumption.

For marketers, it provides a clear pathway to reaching out this emerging new generation. Moreover, Generation Z accounts for $44 billion annual purchasing power in the US alone which clearly indicates the potential contribution to future markets. However, to tap the potential it is imperative to cater to their needs.

The infographic is based on the study conducted on 3000 respondents across the United States.
