Well, data about generation Y shows that mobile is only going to be bigger!
Generation Y (a.k.a. Millennials) are people born from the early 1980s to the early 2000s. This is the generation that follows Generation X – baby boomers. In a few years, they are going to have the biggest purchasing power, so let’s take a look at how they use mobile devices.
Data shows that 68% of Millennials shop or research on their mobile devices, compared with 59% of baby boomers. Also, at least 20% of them shop more on mobile than in any other way, which is real shopping or shopping on a PC.
But there is more, Millennials are so focused on mobile that they are likely to recommend a nice app if they were satisfied with how it works. Nearly 70% of them would recommend it to a friend, compared with only 57% of people from Generation X.
