According to Pew Research, members of Generation X were born between 1965 and 1980 and Millennials were born between 1981 and 1996. Xennials, though, were born some time between 1977 and 1983.

    I have done a new target segmentation and am annoucing nano-generations.

    I fall into the BB55 nano-generation.   Baby boomers born in 1955.   In fact I am looking at segmenting by date-of-birth ... pico-generations.

    What about "Gen E", John? That's really the big new thing in "advanced marketing". It consists of anyone born who is still alive ---but they must be over the age of 2 months. BTW, the "E" stands for everyone and includes 99.99% of all consumer spending. I haven't figured out why it's not 100.00%---perhaps rounding?

    Now you have let the Gen-E out of the bag.

    Given that the over 65s aren't worth advertising to apparently, I'm re-dubbing them Gen SB (still breathing).
