Besides, I'm studying for my comprehensives: I have an excuse!

All jokes aside, in general, I do notice a difference with my generation and that of my older sibling, who is only 6 years my senior. One cannot doubt the difference between those who grew up in the 70s and 80s and the facebook/instant messenger generation. Using facebook at 40 doesn't count. What I mean by the latter generation is that they grew up using it and is therefore an inextricable part of them.
