  • Mobility means having the ability to be connected, anytime, anywhere, anyplace. Having universal access to the communication tools, information and applications you rely on to be productive, regardless of where you are and what device you have access to at the time.
  • M stands for Media and in some cases Mobile. The M Generation are individuals who spend a considerable amount of time using Media.
  • According to a study conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation in 2005, Generation M: Media in the lives of 8-18 year olds, young people today live in media-saturated lives, spending an average of nearly 6.5 hrs a day with media. That is 44.5hrs a week consume in media. The study also found that young people are heavily multitasking, using more than one media at a time, actually exposing them to an equivalent of 8.5hrs.
  • 3 out of every 10 people now have mobile devices. Text Messaging has become the largest data application on the planet.
