These technologies have often been pervasive during their early years,during their formative experiences, and whilst they are making important life decisions.The differences between this “connected generation” (“digital natives”) and older  generations are in some cases greater than conventional North-South digital divides. Thiscomplicates the policy making environment since those making decisions may not fully understand the technology and environments they are discussing...”
