The Most Loved Brands of 2022

Jimmy Choo, Downy and Dolce & Gabbana are the most beloved brands among U.S.adults  in 2022, according to a new report from Talkwalker and Hootsuite.

The third annual Brand Love Report, analyzes more than 1,500 global brands to understand which brands consumers love the most. The report looked at 20 industries in eight markets and listened to 2.6 billion social conversations. The data is compiled based on three equally weighted scores: Passion, Trust, and Customer Satisfaction (CSAT). The report also considers the brand’s focus on environmental, social and sustainability issues. 

“Beloved brands use social to better understand their audience—and what they’re looking for. Beloved brands understand the nuances of each social network well—and are able to use them in ways that improve people’s experiences,” said  Maggie Lower, CMO, Hootsuite, in the report. “But, above all else, beloved brands know how to take advantage of the last true differentiator in marketing—creativity. And they have the courage to use it in big ways. Taking creative risks that don’t just stop thumbs as they scroll but that spark joy, love, and loyalty along the way.”
