Millennials vs. Generation Z Mindset [Infographic]


Born between 1997 and 2010, Generation Z, or GenZ, the youngest of this generation are just now entering the workforce. There are some fundamental differences between Millennials (born 1980 to 1996) and GenZers.

Relationships with technology vary a great deal between these two generations. Millennials were digital pioneers. They grew up with dial-up internet and landlines and later adapted to smartphones; Gen Zers are digital natives who’ve always had mobile devices and Wi-Fi. Both generations are tech savvy and comfortable multitasking on various devices. However, Gen Zers may have learned from mistakes made by older digital pioneers.

For instance, while a majority of millennials favor Facebook, Gen Z is increasingly using Snapchat and Instagram as their favorite social apps because it offers them more control over sharing. Snapchat and Instagram Stories allow users to share photos or messages with only a discrete group of friends for a short time before the data disappears forever.

Here are some additional interesting differences between these two generational groups:
