Future Forecast 2022
Craving autonomy, Generation Z are demanding more from social media monoliths, co-opting existing platforms to suit their needs, and refusing to engage with relentless algorithms

Forget Snapchat and Instagram. In 2022, Generations Alpha and Z will take it upon themselves to create fluid, creative social apps that nurture their mixed gender, intersectional and openly diverse multimedia friendships.

This desire to celebrate their diverse yet specialist skills and talents is also evident in how today’s youth are shifting from content-creators to content-curators. But, as our Reformation Generation youth trend details, young people remain activists at heart. They no longer trust mainstream marketing and advertising models, which seem increasingly out of step with their concerns, targeted anger and alt media agenda.

In our new Future Forecast 2022 report and webinar collection, we explore five trends from the Youth sector:

1. Out-of-work Networks

2. Curator Kids

3. Hangouts 2.0

4. Next-gen Social Apps

5. Teen Ad-vitism

Alongside a Viewpoint with Paul Hill, the 22-year- old founder of Strada, on how he is empowering the next generation of artists and investors.
