Kids These Days: It’s Time to Stereotype Generation Z

科技动态 Wired (源链)

Millennials are, like,
so 2000-and-late. Marketers now hope to sell stuff to kids born after 1995—so-called Generation Z. And this latest demographic designation is just as removed and reductive as any other. This is how marketing firm FutureCast puts it: “They view their identity as a curated composition.” (So … selfies are a thing!) “All it takes to change their outward identity is a simple swipe and an upload to Instagram
.” (Swipe to upload?!) But fine, we’ll play along. After rigorous review of marketing reports and press coverage, here’s a portrait of your new sales target: the screen-swapping, painstakingly curated, social-good-performing Gen Zer (as imagined by Gen Xers).

  • Considers Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games
    a role model
  • Ranks Lorde as a favorite artist
  • Uses Facebook as an “information hub” rather than an “engagement platform”
  • Knows someone who uses gender-neutral pronouns
  • Employs five screens
  • Prefers YouTube influencers to Hollywood celebs
  • Loves Snapchat and can’t live without YouTube
  • Deletes Instagram photos to optimize likes-per-photo ratio
  • Checks social media 100 times per day
