The rise of the connected generation

Reading this article I learned the following about Generation C, the connected generation:

# 1: As a rule, they were born after 1990.
# 2: Many of their social interactions take place on the Internet. In fact, they are the first generation that has never known any reality other than that defined and enabled by the Internet, mobile devices, and social networking.
# 3: They are communicating, community-oriented and always clicking.
# 4: They are typically realists and materialists. 
# 5: They live with their parents longer than earlier generations ever did.

The arrival of Generation C will have an impact comparable to that of the Industrial Revolution, but it will take place much more quickly.
