Abstract

People's relation to technology, and especially to ICT, is changing. A good example of this is the existing and emerging social media which allows people to build new types of networks with each other. As it is a new phenomenon which has become an important part of life to many people, it is logical to ask if differences can be found between people of various ages in their relation to social media. Here, the differences and similarities between technology generations are examined. The study begins with the idea of a cohort learning and adopting technology, and gives insights about the relevance of a technology generation paradigm in the context of life-based design.
