1 H G Internet Use By Age Group Source: Business Week Forrester Data June 2007 Compiled by: The Haefer Group, Ltd.

2 H G Introduction Realizing that we all have ‘more than enough’ on our plates as far as dealing with the current, The Haefer Group compiled these trends from Business Week magazine in June The trends relate to the use of the Internet, by age group – as young as years old. There has been much discussion regarding the influence of technology on the Association community’s core competency of providing information to our members. We now know what a threat and conversely opportunity the Internet has been with regard to our management of information. We believe in examining these trends that the next great impact of technology will be to another core competency of our community – networking, peer counsel and social networking. These trends are fascinating, at the same time frightening. For the most part our members are Gen X, Younger & Older Boomers, and Seniors. While the differences between Gen X and the rest are notable, the real difference for social networking comes in looking at the Gen Y’s and those younger. This came home to me as I watched the coverage of the horrible events at Virginia Tech. And how this newest group relied on technology to reach out and to mourn. Let’s not get caught unaware… start introducing this information to you senior staff and boards! Sue Susanne Connors Bowman Co-Owner The Haefer Group, Ltd
