New research conducted and ranked by digital ad agency Moosylvania and Great Questions, LLC discovered the top 100 brands favored by millennials (who are defined as between 20 and 35 years old). Data was collected from over 3,500 millennials (what countries they came from is not stated) with a roughly half female-to-male ratio who selected their favorite brands over the past three years.
