The release also notes how important apps and social platforms are during the COVID-19 pandemic as resources for disseminating information and keeping people engaged. The 2020 Brand Intimacy report ranks brands not on revenue, functionality or even popularity, but rather how emotionally attached we are to them as people. It surveyed 6,200 consumers in the U.S. Mexico and UAE.
Brand Intimacy measures six characters, fulfillment, identity, enhancement, ritual, nostalgia and indulgence. Beyond apps and social tools, overall company rankings pegged Apple at third, behind Amazon and Disney and ahead of Ford, Jeep, and Netflix.
