Gen Z, Social Life, and Virtual Worlds

Date TBA

We are racing towards a 3D web of virtual media and an embodied internet. Gen Z, with $150 billion of spendable wealth, only knows a life with instant access to on-demand goods, services, entertainment and information. Their entry into the virtual world is seismically transforming the human/computer relationship and demanding new forms of engagement from media, brands, workplaces, and more.
This session explores how a new generation of iPad natives has expectations that have been profoundly altered by this immersive, embodied internet, transforming their interpersonal relationships, leisure time, work, aspirations, and economic prospects.
The 3 panelists are the co-authors of a forthcoming book from Wylie on the Social Metaverse and GenZ/Alphas. They will be joined by a GenZ influencer.
