Episode 6# The stress of streaming delays

How does it feel when your favorite YouTube does not load in time or it buffers? Did you know that heart rate increases with 38% with mobile content delays? When consumers turn to their smartphones to find information quickly, they want an instantaneous response. In this podcast from Ericsson ConsumerLab, we present findings from a recent neuroscience study which looks at how consumer reacts to video streaming delays and its impact on brand engagement and loyalty towards providers offering such an experience.

Episode 5# Sharing information

The topic of privacy is delicate and sometimes contradictory. We often want to share and at the same time we want to maintain our integrity. Today we share more than ever before, from photos to status updates. By posting product reviews or blowing the whistle on a corrupt company, people can make their voices heard. At the same time, with the possibilities to quickly publish and broadcast all over the world, rumors or false accusations can be spread in an instance. Listen to this podcast discussing the growing sharing information culture.
