Emojis Replacing Text – What Is Next?

On 11th July 2018

Fifth DAMconf in Zagreb, November 15, 2018

Technology has changed the way we communicate, act in company of others, and maintain relationships. We are witnessing only the beginning, as the major changes are yet to come.

Google’s personal assistant will soon make your doctor’s, hairdresser’s or advisor’s appointments. Holograms will replace receptionists and hosts. Instead of typing, we will control our devices using voice or motion.

How will these new behaviours and trends impact marketing?

Closer than we think

This future might seem to be distant, but trends disagree. When electricity and telephones were introduced, it took 25-30 years to be adopted by only 10% of households (Harvard Business Review, 2013).

After the arrival of smartphones on the market, it took less than 10 years for them to become an everyday tool used by 40% of the population.

The adoption of new technologies grows exponentially. How ready are you personally? How ready is your brand?
