OpenAI’s ChatGPT: Massive Popularity Yet Limited Daily Use

Despite this monumental success, widespread daily usage remains elusive.

  2. Generational Usage Disparity: A survey by YouGov for the Reuters Institute reveals significant generational differences in ChatGPT usage. Among Gen Z, 44% have never used ChatGPT, while only 9% use it daily. Millennials show similar trends, with 58% having never used it and only 6% using it daily.
