Media Technology Monitor’s newest report series Technology through the Ages highlights ownership and use of media technology across three generations: Millennials (18-38), Boomers (55-73) and Seniors (74+). Among the report’s findings are that 96% of Canadian Anglophone Millennials own a smartphone, making them 23% more likely than those 39+ to own one; Millennials are keen audio consumers with 96% of Gen Zs (18-29) and 91% of Gen Ys (30-38) streaming audio online. YouTube is their preferred platform; 55% of Boomers are engaging in social networking online, with Facebook remaining the preferred platform; and 93% of Seniors subscribe to a traditional TV service such as cable, satellite, or IPTV.
