YouTube releases 2022 Culture & Trends Report about Gen-Z Audience: Connected Church News

YouTube has released this year, 2022, edition of their Culture and Trends report. This year, the report is focusing on Gen-Z. And they’ve talked to the creators and viewers from this generation. There are some interesting statistics that you, as a leader of a nonprofit or a church, do not want to miss. For example, I’ll give you one statistic-“65% of Gen Z online, 18 to 24-year olds agree that content that’s personally relevant to them is more important than the content that lots of other people talk about.” Talk about trending content! You always think trending content is more important, but younger people are saying, “look, what is relevant to us is more important than what is trending”. So your social media strategy can change based on this information. In fact, I’ll read you one more, which says “83% of Gen Z have used YouTube to watch soothing content that helps them relax.” So as ministries, this kind of information is important for us to understand and produce content accordingly.
