ForresterConsumer Technology Adoption Survey : Eighteen-to 26-year-old Gen Yers are integrating technology into their daily lives at a faster rate than any other generation, according to Forrester Research, Inc.'s North American Consumer Technology Adoption Study 2006 Benchmark Survey of 66,707 US and Canadian households. This study, now in its ninth year, is the largest and longest-running study of its kind. It evaluates technology adoption and its impact on consumer behavior, attitudes, and services, including Internet, mobile phones, marketing, media, financial services, travel, and government. The resulting report includes a five-year forecast of 15 devices and technologies, and it incorporates comparative data from 2000 to 2005.

According to the study, Gen Yers spend 12.2 hours online every week 28 percent longer than 27- to 40-year-old Gen Xers and almost twice as long as 51- to 61-year-old Older Boomers. Gen Yers are also much more likely to engage in Social Computing activities while online. For example, they are 50 percent more likely than Gen Xers to send instant messages, twice as likely to read blogs, and three times as likely to use social networking sites like MySpace. "All generations adopt devices and Internet technologies, but younger consumers are Net natives who spend more time online than watching television," said Forrester Research Vice President and co-author of the report Ted Schadler. "Younger generations live online, reading blogs, downloading podcasts, checking prices before buying, and trading recommendations."

Mobile data web services - Consumer technology Survey
Forrester Research Principal Analyst and co-author Charles S. Golvin added: "Young consumers are also advanced users of mobile data services. That means marketers can reach this mobile audience by adopting new channels like blogs, podcasts, and the mobile Web. Among the best news for brand owners and marketers is the fact that young consumers are much more receptive to advertising than the older generations." With more than 950 data points and data on 386 consumer brands, the report, entitled "The State Of Consumers And Technology: Benchmark 2006," offers Forrester clients valuable consumer data for market research, product planning, and go-to-market strategy assessments.
