Technology Age Gap

found this interesting feature from Yahoo Phils. where it says how you use technology would in fact reveal your age... in a recent market survey by WorldOne Research, it was reported that age in fact plays a big factor in the way professionals today embrace technology @ work.

based on the survey, the Baby Boomers (workers born in 1964 or earlier), consistently reported less passion for technology compared to those classified under Gen Y (workers born from 1980 or later), who voraciously use the latest technologies all the time. between these two groups is the Gen X (those born between 1965 and 1979) who generally use gadgets and online tools in moderation.

both Gen X and Gen Y, uses a far wider range of technology compared to the Baby Boomers. here's some interesting stats:
  • use of gaming programs @ work - Yers (39%), Baby Boomers (14%)
  • social networking sites - Yers (62%), Baby Boomers (14%)
  • use of music-players - Xers (60%), Yers 58%, Baby Boomers (35%),
  • video-playing programs - Yers (51%), Baby Boomers (25%)

the facebook breakup letter

dear facebook,

today marks our 10th year together, i must say it has been a sweet journey. unfortunately, time has come for me to walk away.

i had high hopes for us when we started, especially at the time when my heart still beat for… what was her name again? ahh friendster (may she rest in peace). but you were all smile and poised, a neatly uniformed college girl full of hopes and overflowing with excitement. you had me at one poke!

through you i bravely opened up my thoughts to the world. i was able to connect with old and new friends. you bridged time, the longitudes and the latitudes. i got found and new relatives were discovered. once a year you even make me famous sending out birthday reminders. with you, i was a kid in a playground, swiping up or down till the wee hours, unconditionally tagging anyone and gleefully enjoying your games.

know that i am glad to have witnessed you grow - your fun emojis, crazy virals, and live videos i will sorely miss. oh i always thought it’s cool…

I've been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn't happen again.
