They remember a life before the internet
Millennials, born between 1980 and 1995, may be considered digital natives, as they had access to the internet from childhood, but most remember what life was like before. When they were born, their parents may have had a computer with no internet access, or no home computer at all. They remember that nostalgic sound of a dial-up internet connection. They may have had a mobile phone as a teenager, but most didn’t get a smartphone until they reached university or working age. In contrast, Gen Z were born in the mid-1990s or later, a time when most homes had internet access, and during their childhood smartphones became the most popular mobile device.
