An Internet Generation is About Three Years

Forget about Gen Y, Gen X, and other typical ways of defining a generational gap, says Blake Comargere, co-founder of Mogad (kind of a DIGG for friends). The typical Internet generation is about three-four years, he said at a Venture Summit panel (video from Always On). “The usage patterns and behaviors and comfort levels of certain things on the Internet are radically different from people that are just three years younger than you. ... IM is something that grandpas use,” he said. “They leave Facebook messages on my wall saying things like ‘Let’s have lunch.”
