      Who is the next influential ad market?
    2. METHODOLOGY Habbo is one of the leading sources of teen insights & data. There are more than 129 million registered Habbo characters worldwide & 3.9 million in Australia. Six online surveys were conducted during 16 April and 11 May 2009, with an average of 3,000 teens who are registered Habbo users participating in each survey.  Additional insights regarding Generation Z have been compiled from Habbo online research completed during 2008-09. Survey participants were between 12 – 18 years, and were evenly spread between males and females. Teens from every Australian State and Territory participated in the Survey. Survey questions were developed and results analysed by the Launch Group. Due to the age of the survey respondents, these research results provide an indication only of the emerging characteristics of this generation of youth.
    3. GENERATION Z – OVERALL PROFILE Generation Z is a down-to-earth generation, who appear more comfortable in their own skin and may be less faddish than Generation Y. Generation Z aren’t trying to make a statement about their choices…they are just making choices. Having a sense of community is paramount to Generation Z. They gravitate towards media which provides a sense of LIVE community – knowing this means their friends and peers are on the platform at the same time. Generation Z engages in live and fast interaction – whilst they are watching TV, they are generally on the internet and their mobiles at the same time. They follow good content – not necessarily the newest platform/medium.
    4. GENERATION Z – OVERALL PROFILE The ultimate career goal for Generation Z is to “enjoy their work” versus earning a lot of money, becoming famous or working towards the top of a company – which were more typical choices seen amongst previous generations. This generation doesn’t appear to have as strong a desire as Generation Y to live overseas or travel globally. Generation Z has a deep connection with Australia and its characteristics. They seek to understand and comment on national issues, and they are proud of Australia’s multicultural nation status. The desire to be entertained is powerful amongst this generation, who have grown up in a world which provides 24-hour access to digital entertainment. Generation Z has its own language, which rapidly and continuously evolves and can be difficult for those outside the community to access.
    5. GENERATION Z – OVERALL PROFILE Generation Z have strong family values, and they appear to mirror the values of their parents. Whilst they are extremely tech-savvy and are avid users of online services, Generation Z tends to favour more traditional media, such as television, as their news and entertainment source. Generation Z are very media and advertising literate. They are aware of the power of advertising and its impact on consumption habits. Generation Z are extremely altruistic, caring deeply about the environment and global humanitarian issues. Accordingly, they prefer brands which align with their personal value systems. Social justice issues are important to this generation. The majority of teens identified discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexuality as a key concern when selecting their future employers.
    6. Lifestyle Habits
    7. LIFESTYLE – OVERVIEW For the average Australian teenager, home life consists of: Living with their mum and dad in a household of around four people. Getting up between 7 and 8am and going to sleep between 8 and 10pm during the week. On the weekends – going to bed after midnight, with no set time for getting up the next day. Having one pet. Dogs are the most popular choice of pet
    8. LIFESTYLE – OVERVIEW Australian teens like to be involved in decisions around grocery items – however, they are open to parental advice, and to having their parents involved in decisions around what they eat. Food & television brings families together in the home. In addition to spending time around the dinner table during the week, watching favourite programs on TV is a popular way for families to spend time together. Australian teens prioritise digital activities on their weekends – surfing the internet and playing computer games are main priorities. Playing sports and going out with friends, whilst important, were lesser priorities. Australian teens want to connect to a global community – surfing the internet is something they will always do in their spare time.

Generation Z is more like ‘Generation Equality’ and they value their parent’s opinions over money when it comes to choosing their careers. Generation Z appears to be quite down-to-earth when it comes to their career planning, identifying their ultimate career goal as enjoying their work rather than earning a lot of money, becoming famous or working their way to the top of a company.
    54. KEY FINDINGS Careers are a focus for teens – with 58% of respondents saying their future career is very important to them, 39% said their career is “important” and only 2% said their career was not important. Despite this, 81% of respondents said they don’t feel pressured to choose a career Almost half (47%) of the teen respondents said “career enjoyment” was their primary career goal. For 40% of teens, the absence of discrimination based on race, gender or sexuality was a significant issue when it came to choosing an employer. “Earning a lot of money” ranked a distant third in consideration for teens – with only 16% of respondents indicating that this is an important factor in their future choice of employer or career. Power and influence gained a low score from teens, with their interest in being able to work their way to the top of a company receiving a favourable response from only 13% of respondents.
    55. KEY FINDINGS 32% of respondents said parents are the main influence on their career choice, 18% said friends. When considering what future employers may be looking for, 37% of teens thought “willingness to learn” was the most important attribute.

Teens prefer to purchase brands/products that are environmentally responsible - the majority of teens (61%) said that they cared about whether their families purchased environmentally responsible or ‘green’ products. With the recent bushfires in Victoria, Australian teens feel even more concerned about the way the environment is being cared for. Teens want to play a hands-on role - most teens incorporate eco-friendly and green living activities into their everyday lives, including saving power and recycling. The majority of teens surveyed also understand the importance of investing in green, sustainable technologies and renewable energy resources.
    58. KEY FINDINGS When teens were asked which environmental issue they were most worried about at the moment, the following were the most popular responses (teens could choose only one issue): Bushfires (30%) Climate change (15%) Animal extinction (13%) O-Zone Layer reduction (9%) Water shortage & drought (8%) Air pollution (6%) Deforestation & removal of trees (5%) Melting of polar ice caps (5%) Please note: this survey was conducted in February 2009, in close proximity to the bushfires.
    59. KEY FINDINGS Bushfires were also the environmental problem that the majority of respondents chose to fixif they were able to (19%). Climate change (17%), animal extinction (15%), O-Zone layer improvements (12%), and water shortages (10%) were also popular choices. 70% said they actively make an effort to reduce their energy consumption. The majority of teens (61%) said that they cared about whether their families purchased environmentally responsible or ‘green’ products, and 43% said they or their family purchased environmentally responsible or ‘green’ products when they had the option to do so. Almost all teens (97%) said they believe that recycling is important and 82% said they recycled every time they could.
    60. KEY FINDINGS Over half the respondents (57%) use eco-friendly grocery bags every time they shop with their parents. Almost half the respondents (45%) currently help the environment by planting trees, recycling, saving water and walking over using a vehicle. Investing in clean green technology for the future was also a priority, with 90% of teens believing that Australia should be investing in renewable energy technologies such as solar power, wind power, and hydroelectricity to help save the environment. 85% believe they could do more to help the environment, and 65% believe that the Government is not doing enough to help our environment. The media are the greatest source of information for teens learning about environmental issues (65%), followed by school & teachers (14%) and discussion amongst friends (8%).
