8 Things to Know About U.S. Hispanic Millennials, #2 Social Media

Social Media:

SocialMediaThe evidence keeps piling up, as more studies confirm that Hispanic Millennials lead the general population in social media usage.

In 2012 the Pew Research Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, shows that 84% of Hispanic internet users between ages 18 and 29 are users of Facebook, Twitter or another social networking site.

Specifically to the Millennial age range (18-34), Hispanics over-index in their usage of social media.  86% of U.S. Hispanic Millennials use social media, compared to only 47% for their non-Millennial Hispanic elders, and the younger group is also more likely to follow a brand on social media.

A recent study, commissioned by Unilever with its media planning agency Mindshare and performed by social media tool ShareThis, concluded that Hispanic consumers are twice as likely to share content or click on shared content than the general population.  They found that content shared by Hispanic consumers is 35% more likely to be clicked on than content shared by the non-Hispanic population. It was also discovered that Hispanic consumers are twice as likely to purchase the products they share about, compared to non-Hispanic consumers, who are only 1.3 times as likely to make a purchase …

Case Study: CDC Social Media Outreach (Facebook en espanol)

The Nativa team was able to provide relevant Spanish language content to reach out to the Hispanic community and increase awareness of health issues as such as the flu as shown above.


The Nativa team was assigned with the task of creating a Spanish language Facebook (Facebook en español) and Twitter page for the Hispanic audience for the government entity Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The goal of the CDC in this project was to increase online reach among Hispanics, foster engagement with this group, and to be known as a provider of credible, science-based health to all Hispanics in the US.





Through interactive quizzes on social media such as the “Health Super Stars” campaign shown above, the Nativa team helped the CDC increase online reach among Hispanics by fostering engagement with the Hispanic market.


We researched internally and worked closely with the CDC social media team to develop direct and clear messages in Spanish based on three pillars; health promotion, prevention, and safety. Our long term strategy included the development of a 12 month calendar of content for all Hispanic social media pages. This content calendar was largely supported by an …

Sentiment Analysis: Bad reputation in English = Bad reputation in Spanish?

A few weeks back we gave a presentation during the webinar, “Best Practices on Measuring Hispanic Social Media Campaigns ” about sentiment analysis and the differences one may find between what is said in English about a brand vs what is said in Spanish. There were many interesting questions about Spanish social media monitoring and we wanted to continue that conversation here.

So if a company has a bad reputation in English does that mean they necessarily have an equally bad reputation in Spanish?

It may, but not necessarily.  Brands and agencies need to perform sentiment analysis to compare whether the feelings for a brand are the same in multiple languages.  This monitoring should be performed at least weekly as sentiment can change very quickly depending on what is in the news and being discussed online.

Absolutely.  As some of the work we do for our clients, we are often asked to review what is being said on Twitter, blogs, etc. about specific campaigns.  We have had the chance to look at some winners in both languages, campaigns that are dogs in both languages, and a few campaigns …
