Disengagement among Gen Y youth in Malaysia: Growing practice and policy concerns
One of the most enigmatic groups in Malaysia today is the millennial generation, also known as the digital generation, net generation or Gen Y. Gen Y youth are typically considered as those born between 1980 and 2000 and are the first generation to experience information-communication technology (ICT) as a fixture in everyday life (Black 2010).
