Project #73790 - Marketing: Technology and Tracking Consumer Behavior

Important! Read First

Emerging technology has shaped consumer behavior, especially within the past decade.  Consumers in all generations and age groups rely on digital and social media to help them make purchase decisions. Consumer behavior is also directly affected by technology because the purchase decision is simpler and more convenient than in the past.

As discussed in the textbook, this behavioral information is then used to target customers while they peruse online.
