Millennials - beBee


~ 100 buzzes
Millennials (also known as the Millennial Generation or Generation Y, abbreviated to Gen Y) are the demographic cohort following Generation X. There are no precise dates for when the generation starts and ends; most researchers and commentators use birth years ranging from the early 1980s to around 2000.

    Great post, insightful, the millennial diatribe does seem to be born of flash circumstances. Their tastes are different in housing and expectation but they are a market force that if ignored you will be left in the cold. Welcome to beBee.

    I would add that multi-generational housing is a positive force within the market. We have teamed up with one of our daughters and have a home custom designed for two families. Several counties in our area are changing zoning laws that allow for two family dwellings within the family. I see more folks taking advantage of this as the boomers age out.

    Knowledge is only POTENTIAL power.

    Lyon, Great photo and great observation. There are things you can do that push you into networking. These are the activities that force one to network: Be a salesperson, become an entrepreneur, do social research, become a scientist (you have to present findings) Take a customer service job, go to work in communications. Will that get you friends? It depends on you.

    #3 Maybe being isolated with only your devices for months is the cure, because I fully enjoy the company of other people. Sometimes they will text me at dinner and they will be suprised i didn't get it lol, though they are in conversational range of me. They will be like you don't use your phone much do you. I guess it's an intergration of our communication.

    #1 @Chas ✌️ Wyatt Yeah, All the Lonely People is a good one, but the Beatels certainly had a lot of friends. I get by with some help from my friends. I think friendships are a state of mind because I have had very social and quiet periods in my life. I think the social periods are a lot more memoriable. I know Facebook is fading. It's why they tried to buy snapchat, but were rejected, but FB still kind of represents the golden age of social media. I feel like beBee is where my grandparents would hangout. Thank you for the compliment.

    Oddly enough as you sit in restaurants, bars, sporting events etc. people are still on their phones . Put the phone down, enjoy the company of those you are with , and make memories . Use the device to take pictures of the times to remember and share. Imagine that person isn't there what would you want to say to them once it's too late ?

    04/09/2017 #2 Jim Murray
    It's one thing to tell people to get off the social media sites they are on and get out and make friends... But it's quite another for people to actually do it. These sites were created to be addictive and they have done a spectacularly good job of it. Which, of course, makes it very hard for people to kick the habit. I went to a networking event specially created for millennials, because I'm always interested in how human beings function. What I noticed, and I was there to notice shit, was that these people tended to stick with the companies they worked for. There was hardly any and by hardly any I mean almost no real networking or even the attempt at it. Your points are very well taken, but honestly Lyon, it's real uphill work for the vast majoriity to get their faces away from your smartphone these days. Only the most courageous will pull it off. I call these people attention junkies. And even when they do hook up with their friends (check out any Starbucks) they all sit around nursing their addictions. I see this all the time and it's monumentally sad.

    It is true that with the advent of IT, Smart Phones and social networks that loneliness has become embellished, but, it is a condition that every generation copes with. I am reminded of The Beatles song, "Eleanor Rigby" harking back to the 60's~ "All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong?"
    From my current interaction with teenagers, I am finding them more likely to be on SnapChat, or Instagram than Facebook, though. Same issue, just different sites; Facebook is passe'- its where their Parents and Grandparents hang out.
    Just as a footnote; nothing to do with the content of your buzz, but, I find that pic that you have included at the top, very becoming of you.

    I enjoyed your journey of discovering the millennial generation and your conclusions. My hope is you are right, and they have found the elusive escape to the "grind" they point to in discussing their latest off boomer style grid of living.

    I see a disturbing trend though. Apps, and tech start-ups are all dependant on the success of the grind itself. Millennials may find that the serving of the wealth held by boomers will end when boomers age out. Twenty years from now when boomers are left with hover round races and meeting new people everyday, who will be spending money on Airbnb? AI will replace many of the jobs that produce a scale of living across different market sectors. WIth limited employment who will be using these new hybrid businesses that depend on the success of the larger system.

    Boomers started off with some pretty lofty, if not crazy, lifestyles and we landed on our feet. Food clothing and shelter tend to hone our focus when we lack one or all of them. Millennials will find that place they are looking for. The question is will they give into the grind or create a new grind?

    Great storyline.

    I think a bigger issue is the continued targeting of demographic groups (such as Millennials) which is thinking going back to the 70s. How can you compare an 18 year old high school graduate with a 30-something Company Director? I know it has become the rage to target millennials but in this age of big data it seems rather lazy to me. By the way, in the US last year more people aged 75+ bought cars than those aged 16-24 (i.e. under 25)...I'll get the source if anyone is interested...

    Do you think that awareness of their digital footprint perhaps will lead to a reluctance to engage in open conversation? Aa demographic, I find millennials perhaps the least willing to engage through comments and the most aware of their online reputation. Baby boomers are perhaps carefree and tend to swear more online.

    I enjoyed the post as i find millennials and their constant dissection to be fascinating. Myself i define the generation as going through their independence phase. Much like the 60's. Different yes, but clearly they seek a separation from their parents generation and ideals. They will meet with interdependence soon enough, willingly or out of necessity. If you are wanting to engage with them you have to engage their independence. But beware once they bump into interdependence they will change.

    What will be quite interesting is when the millennials are peaking in their careers how they look back at Gen Z.

Boils down to changing opinion vs education and increasing knowledge, or paying for visibility of products and services vs true news.

    And unfortunately this is changing - People are finally whining about "fake news" - but what do you think would happen when news agencies fired the professional news writers and journalists and instead relies on "man in the street" "reality" reporting from un-trained people?

    It's a good idea not to brand yourself as a commodity or a "box of soup" but as a a premium "box of perfume".As in perfume industry a popular brand can command a price premium ,more than forty times the cost of production,the candidate can also aspire to be highly paid by premium employers.To make the job search a fantasy like a perfume with good smell you have to follow the same development process of developing a new perfume.In marketing a new perfume the marketer first outline the features(mainly the candidate's core interests) in terms of a certain target(employer) at a certain price(the salary range) often with a predetermined name(@Kristen Maslanka).You should also emphasis the rational of the synergy,enthusiasm and passion.As a perfume you should convey through your messages the rational of being pretty and young.In the brand positioning era the most important thing is your name..

I hate the way on LinkedOut when you accept a connection request you instantly get a message asking you to buy insurance etc. etc. It really puts my back up and makes me think that the people are desperate for new business. As far as my interests go, I am a part-time artist, I love photography and exploring nature. I also love old black & white movies and am a huge fan of Gregory Peck and Cary Grant. I am a complete bibliophile and have quite a library of my own - mostly self-help books and books on medicine, alternative healing, psychology and travel. I also have 3 cats and would love it if you could do some sketches of them.

    The power of story is immense!!! Storytellers who people love is actually a form of selling! Then some doodoo turns storytelling into washing powder. There is nothing wrong with being a commodity, ever since the birth of commercial media we have been commodities - that is how SOAP opera's started - original television series had soap ads in the middle of the shows !!!

    Why Soap Opera's are called Soap Opera's

    We are the product of social media companies - that is how Facebook, LinkedIn etc make their money, but we are also minds that evolve the market. I would encourage you to study the art of persuasion, and appreciate the abilities of the best marketers, because it is a great education. It is your own choice if you end up being a box of soap!!! My favourite brain in marketing is the Father of PR - Edward Bernays - man, that guy was good. Don't become a Bernays - be the best storyteller you care to be !!!

    " Leave them with a story. Leave yourself with a story. It's not about who you know, it's about WHO KNOWS YOU. So get out there and make some friends! "
    Well said, @Kristen Maslanka!

    Along the lines of a story, there once was a president many people adored, the world over. Ironically, before he became so loved and famous, he gave a famous speech. Some called it an inauguration of sorts. In it, were many paradoxes. It ended with inspiring words that some say have lasted over 50 years, even to those who were not alive at the time. It went something like, "Ask not what your [network] can do for you — ask what you can do for your [network]."

    Well, it was something like that, but me thinks it is very relevant to your story here ;)

Every click is a person. We have to view them as that. If we view every lead we ever get in whatever type of lead funnel we use as statics, we'll never truly succeed. It is possible but it will take probably 1000 times for traffic. Great tips you left.

    #23 It certainly would, and I know i'd learn quite a bit myself!
    Clarity is something i can always improve on!

    Oh really?! Nothing beats an old fashioned book. I still end up with an entire floor of reference books open in a circle around me. I joke and call it my summoning circle of knowledge. (( if you like older books on foreshortening- Andrew Loomis' books particularly his book on illustration is a great reference))

    Goodness, that is exciting! I can't wait to see what you post with it. Yeah i was using an intuos for years before i upgraded to my cintiq, but I couldn't do without it now!

    It's the most convenient guitar for a student to keep without taking up too much room in the plane and in their apartment! I never thought of it that way, but that's a stunning way to view the instrument- I can look at my hohmer in a whole new way. The blues...golly. So beautiful. Ever check out Susan Tedeschi? That girl has a voice like no other. I like pretending I can cover her songs.

    If you ever want to jam some time i'm always open!

    Thank you. I mean that most sincerely, it's been a bumpy ride, but i'm going to make this work, and i'm overjoyed at how welcoming people have been on this website, I'm thrilled to make new friends and I take your words very seriously and with much appreciation. I also think the same of yourself.

    #27 Looks like you are sorted with twitter, just tweeted this excellent buzz! And you know why I think it is so phenomenal? You did exactly what you advised others to do. This is one masterclass of a comments section.

    People are mingling, getting reacquainted, offering help and tips and just plain old gettin' along!


    I'll meander on the topic of "she's a real dog lover" I created the canine companions hive to share photos of these wonderful dogs we get to hang out with and would love to see some more of your work using the various breeds as fairy tale characters.

    Wonderful article and worth the read! @Carl Nordgren wrote, "Millennials aren’t perfect, of course. There is lots of progress that needs to be made. But as I consider the full breadth and depth of experiences I have with them I conclude they have crossed an important line and that Millennials will invite or at least allow everyone in the talent pool in a fashion never permitted before." I agree Carl, I find them to be very inclusive and much more tolerant. I hope we can thank ourselves in part for helping them thrive and use their creative minds. I think if the internet had been around during other generations, those generations before us would be writing about boomers in the same manner or possibly more critical of boomers if they had access to the internet way back when........... Every generation teaches us something and we can either close our ears/minds to it or embrace it. I choose to embrace it. Very nice photo of your father which I'm sure has deep meaning for you.

    I applaud the trend among Millennials to quit jobs that aren't working for them. They are at their peak in terms of mobility; while I think it's painful for corporations - I do believe it will drive change.

    Millennials look at companies as the paths of their thoughts and when these thoughts are blocked ,not addressed or expressed the relationship reach a premature end.Many young talents,so,quit their jobs either because they don't have enough patience or energy to bend with the trend of conformity inside many companies or because their pockets ,time and hearts are filled because they were born with a silver spoon in their mouth.

    In General,considering millennials as loyal assets in their companies is a welfare and a fantasy that go beyond the logic of today's business reality and the well- established economic theories.Thank you @Michael Schneider and welcome on beBee.

    Rockin' article Giles! I wrote one called: "I, too, am a millennial expert." Check it out! & by the way, the one thing I would add is that I think "millennials" main difference "at work" is they are more likely to leave a company that isn't working for them.

    #5 This is the thing, not everybody with millennial kids shares the same experiences he is talking about, but first when I watched this - I thought maybe our family is just an exception to the rule. As I went out exploring this I discovered he has exposed a home truth about a particular parenting style, but one cannot paint all millennials as a result with the same brush - and if anything the usefulness of this video is to discover at the same time the truths that go into a stereotype or a label.

    There is a problem with social media but it applies equally to all generations whether they be boomers or millennials, which is how quickly we take it at face value. It is not that we are not individually intelligent enough to understand it, but that we move on quickly to the next piece of social media before we have absorbed and tested this in our own context or given reality.

    Ironically when I first heard him speak, his powers of persuasion were immense, he had me convinced that he had found the great truth and I had to check myself spouting this as I thought "Wait, why not ask a millennial - the one's I know, the one's we parented".

    In the cold day of light, it is a great truth that pertains to a specific demographic with a specific conformity of cultural values. As Bugs Bunny might say, "sometimes it just feels-white", (I mean right).

    This video is super important and very interesting, anyone with kids should first watch it, reflect on it and then watch it and discuss it with their kids. Because social media are a great thing but managing social media is now part of parenting. Don´t you think so?

    What I am going to focus on most is Simon Sinek delivery and presentation style. He speaks with great authority and assurance, only problem is that I have yet to find a millennial who I have talked to that actually matches up with the kind of millennial group he is talking about. Then again, I have not talked so far to white middle class parents who buy into all such entitlement and spoiling.

    He is addressing a sub-group and if he was Clinton's running mate, he would probably get her another million votes in California and lose the Rust Belt of America by an even bigger margin than Clinton lost it - maybe even 5pts compared to Clinton's 3.5pt under-performance from the last election. Whatever the actual facts of his content, he is a compelling speaker and I am not surprised by the viral nature of this video, it speaks to 100% Sinekism or Cynicism about rich white people.
