From Generation To Generation

Posted on: February 3, 2010

I came across this article that could be very useful for my assignments during my Master programme last year. Too bad I hadn’t come across this article back then.

Anyway, I hope it will be useful for you now. This below I quoted one section of the article, which explains the generation that is now very into digital media: the Digital Natives, or as this article called ‘The Rising generation (or generation Z)’.

Bridging the Generation Gap at Work Through the Power of Communication.

THE RISING GENERATION (BORN AFTER 1997)

This generation has yet to be profiled. Some people are calling this generation “Generation Z,” and many demographers believe that they are going to look very much like our Traditionalist Generation. (Generations do repeat themselves every 80 years or after 4 generations have evolved…they begin to repeat. As an example, Generation Y is actually looking very, very much like our G.I. Generation.) Our current recession is more than likely going to create a generation that is frugal, socially conscious, and craving the need for integrity. This generation is yet to be defined, but I believe this generation along with Gen Y are going to be radically changing our world! Having said this, we are, however, already seeing that texting is indeed one of their favorite forms of communication, and cell phones are being placed in their palms at an earlier and earlier age, as early as age 9.
