VANCOUVER, June 3 /PRNewswire/ - Techneos announced today that Luminosity Marketing has completed a US Consumer Study utilizing the Techneos SODA Mobile Access Platform as its technology solution. The "Boomerang Consumer Study" provides insights about an emerging segment of young adults called Boomerangers who have returned home to live with their parents.
