Data is the cornerstone of our profession. Engaging people to share their data with us, whether opinion or observational data, is dependent on engaging with them in relevant ways. And relevancy requires us to understand their device, media, and communication trends. In this presentation, we will walk you through the most important consumer trends, the data those trends yield, and how that data is being actioned in market research. What's the latest on mobile, wearables, and PC use? How are consumers using email and messaging? What does today's media diet look like in terms of television, radio, and digital content consumption? Where are people going online? What types of data are people willing to share, and what worries them? What new types of data and data sets are being used? And how do you know that all of this data is representative? We will explore all of this, and wrap up with a few examples that will inspire you.
