Which generation would you be in?

After doing research on this list, I think I rather stay in today’s generation.



Today’s generation is easier. What I mean by easier is how easy you can get connected to the net, how easier it is to contact friends and how easier it is to connect to the world (aka you guys).

The only con is that kids today are so stuck into technology and so many people age 13-26 are becoming more “mature” earlier on.


What about you guys? Which generation would you be in and why?

Also, if you have any more to add to the list, feel free to comment!
