๐Ÿค” British & American kids would much rather be YouTubers than astronauts!

Last week, we had the 50th Apollo 11 anniversary, which landed Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the surface of the Moon. On the eve of that, LEGO asked The Harris Poll to survey a total of 3,000 children in ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ about their attitudes toward and knowledge of space.

Asked what they would like to be when they grow up, about 3 in 10 American and British children replied that they wanted to be YouTubers or Vloggers. In fact, becoming an astronaut ranked last among five professions! Only in China did children have a clear preference for being an astronaut!

๐Ÿ“ˆ Facebook Keeps On Growing

Little more than 15 years ago, on February 4, 2004, 19-year old Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg, along with some of his classmates, launched a little website called Thefacebook.

Confined to the Harvard campus at first, after changing its name to just "Facebook" in 2005, the social network was opened to the general public in the fall of 2006, marking the start of one of the most remarkable growth stories in corporate history.

Within three years, the social network added 350 million users and in the summer of 2012 it became the first online service of its kind to reach 1 billion monthly active users. Until today, despite being shrouded in controversy over its (mis)handling of user privacy, #Facebook just keeps on growing. In the past quarter alone, Facebook added 39 million monthly active users, bringing its total user base to an astonishing 2.41 billion.

๐Ÿ“ฐ News Consumption in the UK (2019)

Key findings:

- While TV remains the most-used platform for #news nowadays by UK adults, usage has decreased since last year (75% vs. 79% in 2018). At the same time, use of social media for news use has gone up (49% vs. 44%).

- Use of TV for news is much more likely among the 65+ age group (94%), while the #internet is the most-used platform for news consumption among 16-24s and those from a minority ethnic background.

- Fewer UK adults use BBC TV channels for news compared to last year, while more are using #SocialMedia platforms.

- When rated by their users on measures such as quality, accuracy, trustworthiness and impartiality, magazines continue to perform better than other news platforms, followed by #TV.

๐Ÿ“‰ Facebook losing the battle for Customer Satisfaction

Pinterest keeps its top place for another year with 80% customer satisfaction rate in 2019, with no changes from 2018.

Snapchat's customer satisfaction rate was measured for the first time (by ASCI) in 2019 at 71%, just below the #SocialMedia average at 72%.

After the #CambridgeAnalytica scandal, it comes as no surprise that #Facebook is still struggling to revive its plummeting reputation, scoring the worst out of all platforms. They were also accused of dispersing disinformation, censoring political speeches and allowing foreign interference in the US 2016 election and Brexit.

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ“Š Time Spent on Social Media

On average global internet users spent 2 hours and 23 minutes on social media per day, though trends differed widely by country. In around half of the markets that Global Web Index surveyed, #SocialMedia use had shrunk or plateaued in Q1 2019 when compared with 2018 figures.

Emerging markets continue to spend the most time on social networks during a typical day. This could be driven by the younger demographics of these markets, with the 16 to 24-year-old segment driving growth globally. The Philippines spent the most time connected to social networks, devoting just over four hours a day to the digital sphere. Nigeria, Mexico, and Turkey all typically spent over three hours a day on social media sites.

Some of the more developed markets show signs of plateau which, in part, could be driven by the older demographics of these countries. During a typical day in Japan, people spend less than an hour staying connected digitally. Consequently, Japan also has one of the lowest birth rates in the world. Germany posts only slightly higher numbers, with users going on social media for just over an hour every day, while the UK and the US both spent closer to two hours per day engaging with social media.

As digital habits evolve, marketers and advertisers need to stay abreast of industry and demographic trends as the social media markets mature and become saturated in certain regions and countries.
