What content draws you in online? Might depend on your age.

If you’re looking to offer tech training in your community or you’re trying to get a message out. It’s nice to know what appeals to different demographics.

A recent article in Ofcom report looked at what draws kids’ attention online

  • Drawn to drama: Kids gravitate to dramatic, short-form videos on social media
  • Rise of ‘split-screening’: Trend for watching two videos at once
  • More careful, less creative: Youngsters more socially self-conscious, posting fewer videos.
  • Screen time: 16–24-year-olds more likely to take social media break to manage wellbeing

While the Wall Street Journal looked at what appeals to the 50+ crowd:

  • Fitness wearables
  • Home assistants
  • Streaming services
  • Password protection
  • Scam prevention
