Gen Z is more likely to remember the last website they visited than their partner's birthday or their own social security number

Like so many first impressions, both individual and businesses, are now happening virtually, 60 percent of Gen Z and 62 percent of millennials think presenting oneself online is more important than in-person, finds a study. Compared to Gen Z and millennials, only 38 percent of Gen X and 29 percent of baby boomers find digital presence important.

The study, by US-based e-commerce platform Squarespace, surveyed over 2,000 US adults to find the roles of websites in daily life and how memorable they are. Nearly half (44 percent) of Gen Z and 39 percent of millennials say they make a better impression online than in person, versus 21 percent of Gen X and 8 percent of Baby Boomers. Gen Z is more likely to remember the last website they visited (43 percent) than their partner's birthday (38 percent) or their own social security number (31 percent).

A whopping 92 percent of Gen Z is also well able to multitask while browsing websites online -- they're also more likely than any other generation to eat food (59 percent), listen to music (59 percent), talk on the phone (45 percent) or dance (28 percent) while browsing websites. "The majority of Gen Z believe that how you present yourself online is more important than how you present yourself in person -- and while 92 percent of Gen Z are typically multitasking with other activities while browsing the web, they're also more likely to remember the color of a website than someone's eye color," said Kinjil Mathur, Chief Marketing Officer at Squarespace.

Further, Squarespace discovered that Gen Z is the most ambitious generation: the vast majority (92 percent) of Gen Zers would start their own business, compared to 86 percent of Millennials, 74 percent of Gen X, and 50 percent of Baby Boomers. The survey also found that the younger generations are more adept at navigating social life online. About 86 percent of Gen Z and 79 percent of Millennials look people up online before meeting them for the first time, compared to 65 percent of Gen X and 44 percent of Baby Boomers. (IANS/JC)

Digital becomes more popular and companies expand their D2C (direct-to-consumer) connections

Smartphone companies which have strong consumer pull now face most of the reputation issues caused by infringement of their brands in the digital space, according to a new report.

There are three main techniques pertaining to brand infringement —fake gratification, fake presence and fake representation.

According to Faisal Kawoosa, founder and chief analyst, Techarc, as digital becomes mainstream and brands increase their D2C (direct-to-consumer) engagements, they need to proactively police the digital space to hunt for any infringement cases.

"The first thing brands need to do is to come out of denial mode and create a common synergy between marketing, ecommerce, IT and digital teams," he said in the Brand Reputation Index (BRIX) report.
