ABSTRACT
The article presents the aspect of netgeneration client experience during a pandemic in terms of research by research companies. The aim of this article is to define the concept of netgeneration and the customer's experience during a pandemic. In today's marketplace, customers around the world have the belief that they will live differently in the near future as a pandemic has turned their buying experience. It should be noted that the significant determinants of the new reality seem to be greater uncertainty, less sense of security during shopping and a limited range of face to face sales opportunities. Consumers, therefore, can expect brands that I interact with - digitally or as restrictions are relaxed physically - to provide them with better, safer and more free interaction at a lower cost. In the modern world, there is a strong digital activism / socialism (so-called cyberactivism), i.e. a social movement in which citizens want to influence social, economic and political reality using ICT tools. In connection with this movement, one can define the development of netgeneration, which highly values the rights of the individual, independence and freedom of action, opposing institutions, including business ones, which try to limit them, and has a strong sense of common good and socio-civic responsibility, and therefore its customer experiences mainly are related to electronic purchases.
