A preference for print

Most Millennials prefer print-like experience when it comes to digital news

Members of Generation Y—those born in the 1980s and 1990s—may have been reared on the Internet, but they still show an affinity for print media, or at least print-like media. So points out an article at TheAtlantic.com, referring to a recent Pew Research Center report finding that “[y]oung mobile readers don’t want apps and mobile browsers that look like the future. They want apps that look like the past: 58 percent of those under 50, and 60 percent of Millennials [another name for Gen Y folks], prefer a ‘print-like experience’ over tech features like audio, video, and complex graphics.”
