Socialization in the digital sphere becomes a necessity more than a habit

Trend - In tense and uncertain times, tech-specific relationship-building is becoming more of a need than a fixed habit among consumers. These services and the new ways consumers are using them are enhancing online relationships specifically, rather than functioning as a way to keep relationships going between meet-ups.

Insight - Self-reported loneliness was already considered to be an epidemic before the rapid and significant changes that have been made to peoples’ lives around the world in recent weeks. Now, being isolated in one’s home is quickly becoming a universal necessity, and the mental health risks related to long periods without social contact have the potential to be extremely harmful. Brands that are able to ease the burden related to current events by fostering digital social interactions between customers are quickly being viewed as a need rather than a luxury.
Workshop Question - How is your brand easing consumer burdens in times of individual or collective crisis?
