As families become more disconnected, brands respond with kin-based branding
Implications - As the family home becomes increasingly digitalized, the disconnection between members of a household is creating a generation that lacks the same familial relationships of years past. Attempting to speak to this longing for more intimacy with family members, brands are highlighting siblings and families as a means of marketing to correlate product consumption to filling emotional voids. Family households aside, the stark increase in those living alone over the age of 30 in North America is creating a disconnect that brands are scrambling to appeal to.
