Boomers spending more time online pushes brands to engage their unassuming presence

Implications - Though Boomers don't engage with social media as much as other generations, this doesn't mean they don't spend time online. Having more free time and longer attention spans than Millennials or Gen Z, Boomers are more likely to use time online browsing professional websites such as LinkedIn and social news outlets. This calls for longer videos, more mature content creators and lengthy online adverts targeting those who are seeking more serious, long-form content.
Workshop Question - How can your brand better appeal to the aging consumer using online platforms or social media outlets?
