The wikipedia definition for "Generation-Y" is simply wrong. Wikipedia says that "Generation-Y" == "Millennials" and that's simply wrong.
See I was born in 1973 and I've always referred to myself as Generation-Y. My brother who is 3 years older than me
is Generation-X (the "do nothing generation.")
You say, "So what's the difference?" Simple. Generation-Y were the pineers of the internet. My brother just missed
the internet explosion because he's 3 years older than me. He's Generation-X.
I'm Generation-Y. I had one of the first 10,000 "home pages" on the internet.
But I'm not a Millennial. So no, Generation-Y does NOT equal a Millennial. Wikipedia is wrong.
So the clearify this once and for all:
Born in the 1960's = Generation-X
Born in the 1970's = Generation-Y
Born in the 1980's to 1990's = Millennials.
