Generations Online in 2009 is a survey from the Pew Research Center of online usage by age groups. Do you know what group you’re in? There’s Generation Y, Generation X, Younger Boomers, Older Boomers, and the Silent Generation, among others.
Generation Y is the most likely to be engaged in all the various activities — communication, entertainment, e-commerce and entertainment-seeking.
I’m a Gen X’er and get more of my news from the internet, don’t text as much, but bank online; all true.
Activities for Baby Boomers depend on whether they are older or younger Boomers. Ages 45 to 54 are more likely to watch videos online (49%) than older boomers ages 55 to 63 (30%) but the reverse is true about seeking health information (81% of older boomers do, compared to 74% of younger boomers.)
The Silent Generation loves email. The Dumbest Generation?
