What is a "millennial" to you and yours?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I know the definition but people have different views about it.

So, how do you feel about it?

How do your children or spouse feel about it? 

My general overall feeling is that "millennials" are children growing up in the "social media" generation. 

I don't do Facebook, or Tweet or any other online media except for this one and only when I am here in the Philippines.

Wife does Facebook. Stepson does Facebook. 

Each generation is exposed to more modern technology. Virtual reality is a new good one that wasn't around during my youth.

Oh, ok, I still have a dumb phone that I use. I also have an Apple iPod that I store music on. I love my music anywhere anytime.

To me, a millennial is somebody born from the year 2000 onwards.

I have used Facebook since 2008, plus other social media since the late 90s.

I have had a mobile phone since the early 80s. Before that, a pager.

So far no secret services people have arrested me for any awful secrets I've revealed in cyberspace . Nobody has emptied my (pitifully small) bank account.

I'm 67, but like to keep up with the times.  I play on my Xbox most days...including online gaming. I download 'current' music... and dance to it when out at parties, etc. 

You're only young once. Make it last.  :thumbsup:

I heard that some people have a 2nd childhood.  So much for " only young once".  Congratulations

 

Did your wife tell you to "make it last"?

So, that would make you an "old phart" .  Is that pre or post WW2?

My wife (getting on herself now, at 33) tries to keep up, and has insisted I try to stay alive for at least another 20 years.

I will do my best.

 You know something? When I read these types of Topics i sit and think :wow: are these kids doing different to what we tried to do in our teens and early 20's? no not really are they? it is just a that we did not seem to get away with so much in our days, At 19 I was in the Air Force, at 21 married and a Daughter on the way, Yes they are a hi tech Breed but I am sure we should all think on How it would have been if we had the Technology then. What would have our Parents have called us, just as they did then I guess :huh-huh: Youngsters Today, springs to mind.

We took some of the family Millennials to Biaz, Tanjay and ended up back at freedom park (Dumaguete) new years day;
