We know that our teenagers are tech-savvy like we have not even been TV-savvy at the same stage of live. This modern generation is incredibly connected, wired and online these days.

This, and some another infographic from OnlineGraduatePrograms.com, will help marketers and the „older“ generations understanding why technology is driving young peoples‘ lives. This is not all the latest findings but seeing it on one spot always gives some thought-provoking statement which we all should think about and discuss…
