    "young generation" and "the younger generation"

    What is a difference between the following 2 expressions:
    1) young generation
    2) the younger generation

    Could you please give several examples of their using (additional question: I am not sure as well whether I should put here "usage" or "using")?

    Thank you in advance :)

    Hi Tvita

    1) young generation is a generation that is young
    2) younger generation: in comparison to the previous and older generation

    Ex: examples of their usage

    Re: "young generation" and "the younger generation"

    So in the following sentence which expression would be better to apply?

    Sociological research shows that advertising has a huge impact on society, especially on (the) young(er) generation.
