According to eMarketer’s Insider Intelligence, with 375 million daily active users (DAU) and over half a billion users worldwide, Snapchat is here to stay—and growing. In its Q4 2022 earnings report, the company announced that its platform experienced a 17% year-over-year increase in DAU.
Snapchat has been known as the platform of choice for Gen Z, with nearly 84% of its users belonging to this generation that spends nearly 40 minutes a day on the app. Why is it so popular with 18-24-year-olds? Snapchat conducted a study in partnership with Omnicom Media Group that explored the motivations for Gen Z consumers and how brands can better align with them.
According to the study, there are two main motivations. First and foremost, “Gen Z expects brands to be drivers of social change” and is more loyal to brands prioritizing this. Second, Gen Z’s content consumption is “driven by a desire to keep up-to-date,” seeking “content that aligns with their values and lifts their spirits and engagement.” The study suggests that Snapchat may be a valuable platform for reaching this audience because it checks all these boxes: it offers uplifting, relevant content that aligns with their social causes and concerns.
What else is Snapchat doing to make its user experience even more engaging for consumers? Snapchat prioritizes innovation, and this year will focus heavily on its unique AR capabilities to provide more personalized shopping experiences for customers. It’s also looking to make AR more approachable for less digitally established retail companies through a suite of solutions to help these businesses simplify asset creation.
Given the platform’s popularity with Gen Z, steady user base, and focus on innovation, Snapchat has proven its position as a platform of choice for consumers and marketers alike. But, with Snapchat being only one piece of an omnichannel marketing puzzle, finding scale and success within the silos of the walled gardens is challenging. Marketers need visibility, actionability, and accountability across and within their channels more than anything else.
