Millennials by the Numbers

Posted by Lauren Schoener-Gaynor on May 15, 2018 4:30:35 PM

Generation Y (my generation) grew up on personal computers, cell phones and video game systems. Generation Z has been attached to tablets, smartphones and apps since birth. While neither likes to be “lumped in” with the other, both generations are transforming and altering communication and identity all over the world. These changes directly effect how companies and associations are (and should be) marketing to millennials.

Posted by Joseph Sapp on Feb 20, 2018 11:00:00 AM
