Not Brand Loyal - Instead, the product itself is whats important, regardless of marketing campaigns. 7. Age of the Curator - Generation Z is doing the same with every other purchasing decision. The result what you see them wearing, watching, and reading is their own curated version of the world. There is no hiding from Generation Z. They are extreme curators, sharing and panning everything from movies to books to clothes (and eventually, cars, home furnishings and health care plans).8. Enhance and Enable Curation - What does Generation Z care about? Finding and sharing the best stuff in the world. They arent just consumers, they are curators. They not only discover brands and products but they evaluate them with brilliant objectivity, sift through them, and share the results. Please a Generation Z-er with your particular product or service and youll earn your biggest supporter. As a result, marketers need to make it easy to share what their Gen Z customers love. From Facebook Likes to branded tweets to Polyvores brand expression collages, its never been easier to share your opinion online.Socialnomics Connect Globally to CollaboratePartnership for Global LearningWebinars for Global LearningGlobal LearningTaking it GlobalGlobal Learning Partnerswww.gng.orgGlobal Nomads Groups "is an international non-government organization that creates interactive educational programs for students about global issues."http://www.epals.comepals is a K-12 online community for meaningful learning.
