Meta enhances teen safety on platforms: Amid FTC litigation, emphasizes stricter content controls.

If it feels impossible to keep up with Gen Z slang, that’s because it is. TikTok has turbocharged an already fast-moving content cycle, so you’ve probably heard about trends that sound like gibberish. It’s tempting to give up on the spiraling influx of new language, but marketers need to understand at least some of the lexicon to avoid creating “cringe” content. Here are some terms marketers should know.

Facebook’s new privacy feature is lacking, critics say: Link History lets users opt out of browser tracking, but only in specific cases.

On today's podcast episode, our contestants compete in The Great Behind the Numbers Take Off, 2024 trends edition, where they will try and cook up the most interesting predictions for the coming year. They'll discuss GenAI supercharging search, connected TV's (CTV's) next milestone, and short-video's monetization problems. Tune in to the discussion with our analysts Jasmine Enberg and Yory Wurmser, and vice president of content Paul Verna.

On today's special podcast episode, we conclude our monthly contest where we discuss the biggest trends of the moment and the newest research, sprinkle in some analysis, and bundle it up into a quiz. Every month this year, three of our analysts representing their respective coverage area teams have competed against each other—now it's time to crown a champion. Today, we cover how X (formerly Twitter) will look in 2024, whether people will buy cars online, and what we can expect from the ad market. Tune in to the discussion with this month's contestants: our analysts Evelyn Mitchell-Wolf, Carina Perkins, and Yory Wurmser.

Earlier this month, Pinterest hosted its Pinterest Predicts pop-up event, a showcase in New York City combining trends, predictions, photo ops, and shoppable displays. The pop-up offered insights into what experiential social commerce can be, and how brands can offer retail experiences without needing to stock products.

Gen Z embraces messaging, search, and shopping: Social media trend reports shed light on 2024 priorities.

33% of US Gen Z consumers have purchased a product from an influencer-founded brand in the past year, followed by millennials (29%), according to Morning Consult.

51.1% of US Snapchat users will come from Gen Z this year, according to our September 2023 forecast. TikTok is also dominated by Gen Z, with 44.7% of users coming from that age group.

Creator content isn’t an experimental area for advertisers anymore. It’s an established, full-funnel channel that can deliver measurable results. Why is the channel so important right now?

The platforms’ short-video craze will cool. Reels is now revenue-neutral, but reports hint that Meta is struggling to convince advertisers that Reels can drive performance.

In part one of this two-part podcast episode, we discuss some predictions for 2024 that are too specific to be 100% certain about but could still come true, including: which subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform Apple will likely buy, where metaverse playgrounds will spring up, and what the ruling between Google and the US Department of Justice will be. Tune in to the discussion with our vice presidents of content Suzy Davidkhanian and Paul Verna and analyst Max Willens.

While in-store is the No. 1 way Gen Z discovers clothing, 39.0% of US Gen Z clothing buyers have used social media to discover new apparel brands or products over the last six months, according to our September 2023 survey.

On today's podcast episode, we discuss the travel rebound and how tech is helping it out, how Black Friday football (with a side of online shopping) performed this year, will X (formerly Twitter) go bankrupt next year, a new way to stream NBA games post-cable, what to expect from ChatGPT next year, why your passport is the color it is, and more. Tune in to the discussion with our forecasting writer Ethan Cramer-Flood, forecasting analyst Zach Goldner, and director of forecasting Oscar Orozco.

Gen Z is different from older generations. They are digitally native, spend more time watching videos, and have embraced the overlap between media and technology. But Gen Z has some particular habits marketers should pay attention to. Brands should make sure they’re staying relevant and avoiding stale content, promoting individuality, and helping Gen Z be their best selves.

From Goop and the New York Times to TikTok creators, everyone is putting out a gift guide this year, trying to get a piece of this year’s holiday sales pie, which we forecast to reach $1.31 trillion in the US.

A private Swiss bank’s stock price dropped drastically after it disclosed a significant exposure to a troubled client—and social media amplified the news.

Winning Gen Zers’ deposits will depend on capturing their attention and trust early in the customer journey. At the discovery and consideration stages, Gen Zers’ habits are very different than those of other generations, per our inaugural survey of 1,488 US banking consumers. That means banks must rethink their marketing strategies to best appeal to this generation’s preferences.

On today's podcast episode, we discuss whether X (formerly Twitter) can recover from its latest debacle, if folks will start buying cars on Amazon, whether ad-free social networks are inevitable, companies potentially ruining "buy one, get one free" deals, United Airlines weighing using passenger data to target ads on planes, how people feel about tipping in the US, and more. Tune in to the discussion with our vice president of Briefings Stephanie Taglianetti and analysts Ross Benes and Bill Fisher.

After its US launch in September, TikTok Shop faces its first holiday season, heating up competition in the social commerce space.
