Connected Consumer

The connected consumer has emerged as a result of three key trends. The first two are the intersection of mobile technology and social media, which has allowed us to expand and consult our network as never before. From purchase decisions to everyday hedonic consumption experiences, we share our daily lives with our friends and acquaintances. From meals to life milestones, our network is with us digitally. The result of these two trends leads to the third: self expression.
