Online with the Net Generation
September 28, 2009 Leave a Comment
The USA Today has produced an interesting article looking at the rise (and rise) of social media and networking amongst Generation Y, increasingly known as the Net Generation. If you’ve only momentarily broken away from Mafia Wars on Facebook, or tweeting on your iPhone, to read this post then I’m sure plenty of this sounds pretty familiar!
The article touches upon the buzz topic that is the Real-time Web, something very close to our hearts here at Moreover, although in part illustrating it as ‘the obsessive use of PCs or cellphones for quick interactions and dips into the online information stream’.
As Web 2.0 matures into the Web Squared, with the Web become more conversational, it’s no surprise that real-time search has fast become such a hot topic and social media has changed the way we communicate – any Net Geners out there struggling to switch off?!
