Gen Z are people who were born between 1997 and 2012 (9 – 24 years old) and as this generation covers both children and adults, their online behaviours will vary drastically. There will be distinct changes in how and where they engage with stories online.
The important thing to know is that this is the most digitally native of any generation.
