81 Percent of Generation Y Checks Facebook Every Day

Days after the announcement that Time Magazine named Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg their prestigious, notable and coveted “Person of the Year,” reports have arisen that Generation Y, the generation of Mark Zuckerberg, uses his program twice as much as they watch television and/or read local or national newspapers.

Generation Y is the demographic that is typically described as Americans born between 1975 and 2000 with a heavier statistical focus on the birth rates of 1982 through 1995. Also commonly known as the Echo Boomers, Millennial Generation, Millennials, Generation Net and Generation Next, a large majority of Generation Y are children born of the previous generation known as the baby boomers.

Mark Zuckerberg’s Education Background

Mark Zuckerberg was born on May 14, 1984 in White Plains, New York. He is a computer scientist and software developer; however, perhaps what he is most famous for is creating Facebook. Earlier this year, the movie, The Social Network, took a look at Zuckerberg’s personal life and the creation of Facebook. Now, EDUinReview will take a look at his education background.

Zuckerberg is one of Karen and Edward Zuckerberg’s four children: Arielle, Donna, Mark and Randi. Although he was born in White Plains, he was raised in Dobbs Ferry, NY. Zuckerberg first began experimenting with computers and software programs when he was in middle school. He had a private tutor, David Newman, who helped him and has called Zuckerberg a “prodigy” because he was so skilled.

He attended Ardsley High School for his freshman and sophomore years. While at Ardsley, he excelled in the classics. His passion for classical works has stayed with him since then. On his college application, he said that he could read and write Hebrew, Latin, and ancient Greek, all of which are classical languages.

Or maybe they said the famous one-liner: “School is your job, I go to work everyday, so, you have to go to school,” when you were trying to stay home “sick.”

But what if school really was a child’s job? Meaning at the end of each week they received a paycheck?

A study of children in Chicago, Dallas, Washington and New York presented this proposition.
