Gen Z's podcast listening surges: New study reveals insights into the habits and preferences of this diverse listener demographic.

More of your customers are LGBTQ+ than ever before: Recent studies highlight a surge in global identification, particularly among Gen Zers.

While only a small portion of the market today, embedded channels will make up more than 30% of all insurance transactions by 2028, per EY. Insurers who don’t figure out now where they fit into the ecosystem—and how to implement the necessary technology—may lose digital-first customers and younger demographics to competitors who do.

Adoption of digital wallets is approaching critical mass, but they won’t replace physical wallets anytime soon. However, a super app may be on the horizon, especially if companies can crack the ability to integrate payments with shopping services.

Gen Zers will drive the growth of emerging payment methods, opening the door for providers to reach them through digital and mobile. But card-based payment methods are still relevant. To tap their rising spending power, providers must align their offerings with how Gen Z prefers to pay.

Its fastest-selling game is extending the popularity of the 7-year-old handheld console and defying the cloud-gaming trend.

While Meta struggles with innovation and attracting younger users, at Snapchat, innovation and Gen Z users are in high supply. So why is the company struggling? “Snap doesn’t lack when it comes to innovation,” our analyst Jasmine Enberg said on a recent episode of our “Behind the Numbers” podcast. “But there are serious questions about the health of its core business, and it really needs to focus on turning those things around.”

Nike’s close connections to sports and sneaker culture keep it on the top of Gen Z’s list of favorite brands while its cutting-edge sneaker technology makes the brand a must-have for runners. But Nike must use a mix of D2C and wholesale commerce if it wants to defend its title from the competition.

Meta's major monetization of minors mishap: The FTC has proposed to bar the social giant from using children's data for their ad business.

Concerns surrounding privacy are high, which could weigh on marketers’ efforts to target consumers. US adults under 30 are slightly less concerned (66%) than older consumers about the use of personal information for targeted digital ads, according to the Out of Home Advertising Association of America and Morning Consult.

Though it may be tempting to lump Gen Alpha (consumers born after 2013) and Gen Z together, there are several differences between the two that marketers need to understand to effectively target the growing generation. As the second generation of digital natives, Gen Alpha will expect seamless digital experiences and mobile-first approaches. They also have more purchasing power than one might expect, with brand affinity starting around age 7, according to Morning Consult.

Snapchat's Q1 revenues fall short of expectations: Despite lower ARPUs, Snap's saving grace is its coveted younger audience.

Thirty-one percent of US adults said social media has a positive effect on their mental health, per YouGov. However, almost as many (30%) feel it has a negative influence. Across generations, millennials are most likely to report a positive effect, while Gen Xers are more likely to cite a negative impact.

As the first digitally native generation, marketers must recognize that what works for older demographics won’t necessarily work for Gen Z. On social media, Gen Z expects brands to understand the different ways they use each channel, while on streaming, content remains king (though price is an important factor).

In March, 37% of US teens called TikTok their favorite social media app, up from 30% the same month two years ago, according to Piper Sandler. Snapchat dropped to second place, falling to 27% from 31% during that period. In the No. 3 spot is Instagram, which 23% of teens named their top choice.

Meta's social VR platform, Horizon Worlds, opens to teens: Lawmakers have concerns, but the Facebook parent is adamant on building its metaverse user base.

Moving across the US-Canada border can be the first step toward international expansion for retailers. Canadian brands like lululemon athletica and Aritzia are thriving in the US. Meanwhile, US-based companies Lowe’s, Nordstrom, and Bed Bath & Beyond recently announced they were leaving Canada. And let’s not forget Target’s famous Canadian failure. Here’s a look at how brands on both sides of the border have fared, and the lessons you can learn from them.

A ban isn’t swaying brands from spending on TikTok: Apple, Pepsi, and DoorDash are among brands increasing ad spend despite hefty political problems.

Authenticity matters in ads: Some underrepresented groups are less pleased with their depiction in advertisements.
