Finding your feet in a pandemic
It’s not news that the financial markets across the world are falling fast – in the States the market is falling quicker than the Lehman Brothers in 2008 – but not every industry is struggling.
Online home entertainment networks are doing well. People can’t stop asking for recommendations online (25.4k) with people mentioning the biggest streaming brands 447k times on social media.
Online interest in fashion, especially loungewear, has peaked too, with 17.8k English-langue mentions online. This seems to have been boosted by sales promotions, which were mentioned 505k times on social.
As we’ve already mentioned, internet platforms like Zoom, have become increasingly crucial as more people work from home. But it’s not all business: from virtual pubs, to concerts, to birthday parties and weddings, people are really being creative with what they can do to socialise.
There were 237K mentions of similar services, with 39% of emotion-categorized conversation registering as joyful, as people try to make the most of the quarantine.
