The Millennial Generation is here, they are impacting the way companies set up web sites, stores, mobile sites and create policies. There is no doubt of the size of the Millennial generation, although there is some disagreement about the exact membership in the generation.

This generation is larger than the Baby Boomers and far larger than Gen X which was the baby bust generation that followed the Boomers. Many have called the Millennial Generation the first "digital natives" as they grew up with technology being common place in their lives. This, however, is not completely true as one could argue that what we have not really named yet, which may be referred to as generation Z (those born from 2001 to 2020) will be the real digital natives as they will have grown up with smart phones in their cribs! The Millennials did not really get smart phones until many of them were well into their teens or later.
