In the week Facebook turned six and announced its membership had passed 400 million, it's time to review what we know of the Facebook generation (Gen F).
This was also the week when commentators have realised that social networks and microblogging are more compelling among this group than old-fashioned blogs.
My contribution to the discussion was to ask a group of first year students attending a 9am lecture about their media and communications usage so far today:
95% had sent or received a text message
10% had made or received a voice call
70% had listened to the radio
5% had watched TV
30% had used Facebook
0% had used Twitter
20% had read a newspaper
0% had bought a newspaper
