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.

    I have to agree with @Dean Owen who quite rightly points out that this generation might become reluctant to engage in open conversations. Millennials are some the hardest to crack when trying to persuade in advertising. They trust no one!!!

    I have found the opposite - they hope that their behavior will be picked up. It's a "I'll express myself however I want; piss off if you don't like it ."#6

    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 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.
    Mohammed Sultan
    20/01/2017 #1 Mohammed Sultan
    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.

    #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?
    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    06/01/2017 #4 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    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.

    Every generation calls the one behind it slackers, lazy, disrepectful and entitled. Fire up your browser and look what Boomers were saying about Gen-X circa 1991 AFTER a crapton of us were deployed for THEIR latest war. The key is to not give a f*ck and drive on with your own life. PS "safe places" are not helping your narrative.

    Lexus, I think the media has made it a habit of beating up on Millennials via and abundance of negative news. The good news is that Gen Z will soon be in white hot media spotlight focusing on this new generation's perceived flaws, etc. This harsh media treatment is sort of like a rite of passage of each new generation. As a Gen Xer, I recall the media bashing we had to put up with, like Nirvana being called the poster child for a generation of bored young people who just wanted to be entertained. Other examples abound. Gen Y will be "off the hook" soon enough.

    Being a boomer i will have to admit some generalized trash talk. But i will also have to admit that Millennials have pointed out that I am Ward Clever of the 50's era family show. Boomers like anyone else in the human race throw rocks at what we don't understand. Millennials should note that they will occupy our space soon enough. Your children will laugh at your iPad and mac books in just a few years.

    Boomers would do well to make nice with Millennials. As Barbara Bush told George, they will be picking your nursing home and providing your care.

    I am slowly starting too get the new generations, but if i back slide in public and you are the one to catch me, offer me a blanket and some ensure with a shot of Don Julio. I will come around.

    What differentiate guys from girls millennials is the role given to them.Although the word millennials is associated more with guys rather than girls and this fact has made us think the world as a very masculine world, many guys today are not tough ,emotional and very friendly most of the time.This interpret why many girls in their twenties can pass a masculine test;when their wishes are projected we find that their motivation are always similar to that of their fellow guys,their preferences are associated to dimensions of power ,energy ,self-importance ..etc.In our cultures,girls are protected by their physical nature,laws and ethics and can go easily against the current of events without criticism.This's why they consider themselves important and a critical element in their society and enjoy life.Thank you @Adam Weedy for your insightful article.

    Interesting perspective @Adam Weedy. I actually can't keep up with all the labels, "boomers, Gen X, Gen Z and Millennials." I can't speak to the conversations you heard because you did hear them but my daughter is 28 and I've been around her along with her friends and I can attest their worldview is more connected than some people my age, their main goal is not gossip but talking about life, they have a lot of respect for everyone (unless someone doesn't deserve it), they share recipes, enjoy learning about and try to utilize all natural products or can their own food. Those are just a few examples. My daughter and I actually do canning together. I'm sure it differs depending on location and many more cultural and biological aspects.

    No one heard of such age brackets before. We have baby boomers, millennials, generation Y and generation Z. Why people just can't live and love life.

    This generational rhetoric is really getting old. We seem to have a fascination about various generations and don't clearly understand that as many dissimilarities as there are between generations, there are just as many similarities. The differences are simply the constant changing landscape. How could someone born in 1980 have the exact same views as someone born in the year 2000, just look at the significant social and economic differences. We really need to stop talking about Millennials like they are individuals coming from a leper colony. If you take the time to speak to individuals from a variety of generations, you'll find it to be a group of people that could represent view points from all four generations, it's the nature of people.

    Xander, I do see this kind of pattern among the college students I work with. It is not the stereotype of the millennial that I focus on, but that there is a distinct difference in the worldview of this particular generation, and the newest generation has its own traits that come from their exposure to the world of mobile. I already see my grandson bottle fed on a smartphone - and these environmental and social differences do permeate into an overall generational worldview. I still look upon people as one-to-one because the best students I work with do break the mould - and they need to be respected for who they are, rather than as a "millennial" label.

    @Federico Alvarez San Martin Thanks for sharing this. Millennials get slammed for various reasons, but I think the rest of us can learn from what they value. How many folks really need a cable/satellite TV package that offers more than 100 channels? Owning a house isn’t the ideal housing solution for everyone. Motor vehicles depreciate in value and how many tax dollars are needed to build and maintain an automobile transportation infrastructure that’s deemed inadequate or unsafe as it is? Leading a healthier lifestyle does so much to drive down future health care costs, too.

    Personally I am hoping the Millenials succeed where the hippies failed.

    The hippies failed by allowing their movement to become about a lot of drugs and sex and more of a hedonistic approach to life not taking into account the effects of such behavior.

    The edge of technology is something the hippies never had.

    The Millenials have old hippies to talk to that the hippies never had.

    There wasn't a generation that had tried before for the hippies to go to in times of need of guidance.

    I am part of Gen X, the generation that feels guilty that we didn't do it.

    I can think back as the hippy movement started making a comeback when I was in High School however we so brow beaten by the boomers, our parents we folded.

    The Millenials have a lot of people that are older that are on their side that the hippies never had.

    The Hippie movement in California was over before it started in Texas. It was a phase that lasted me from about the 8th grade until 12th, or from age 13-18. 1968-1973. It centered mostly around music and the quest for girls. In Texas, there was a fast car component, long hair, clothes. And speech patterns. It had little lasting impact on my thinking processes as it was fairly superficial. It was something to grow out of as adult needs and goals took hold.

    #8 @Randy Keho well --of course not all of the baby boomers were hippies; not all of those that were --went into policy...I think ultimately, it's not even about "hippies"...at all...it's about fulcrum points in history; a large demographic coming of age in a time of "bad craziness". People respond in different ways; to me the image of a hippie was that of someone who recognized/recognizes that the prevailing values at a given time are due for a recalibration...in a direction that is more "towards nature (the habitat we require to exist)" and less "towards separating from (and utilizing technology to conquer) nature...but I know...this whole Trump thing seems like such a bummer...and all these squares trying to bring me down with their rules.

    It should be interesting to see how millennials evolve into politicians. The original "hippies" didn't do so well.
    At President-elect Trump's request, Tulsi Garrard, D-Hawaii, a two-tour veteran and millennial, met with him yesterday, which is considered "bad form" as a member of the other party. He requested her input on Serbia and foreign policy. She serves on the House Armed Services Committee and often challenged President Obama and his policies. Talk of her being offered a position in the Trump administration is highly unlikely. However, she broke with the Democratic Party over their treatment of Bernie Sanders.
    I applaud her for apparently putting the country ahead of politics.

    In my experience, big cities are great, not just for the opportunities they offer, but for the open-mindedness they tend to have, as well as the mind-your-own-business attitude. The latter may appear desolating to some people, but if you've grown up in a city where everyone knows pretty much everyone else and there is no privacy in social matters, you become more appreciative of the mentality of larger urban areas, even if they seem a bit impersonal at times.

    Alex brother welcome to beBee !!!

    When I see how my kids use social media, they are using it in a whole healthy way - a way that older people may find alien - and they are simply extending the same face-to-face friendships, giving them an extra dimension to the F2F.

    All the concerns about being stuck in the machine are meant to be a awareness thing - but if we half as intelligent as we would like to think, we will still recognize this awareness - and somewhere between the end points of abstinence and addiction, we can find where our own personal awareness rests. Everything in life falls somewhere - so long as we know we personally know where.

    For me, being on beBee is neither about negativity or opportunity but that is my choice and I don't enforce this choice as a model for others to follow, indeed I eschew the whole notion of following - following does not make sense to me - and what makes sense to me is a personal choice - which returns me right back to awareness.

    IMHO awareness has a direct relationship with intelligence, except I don't find it useful to add a prefix to intelligence, unless the caveat is that intelligence is WHOLE no matter what cavaet we apply - so yes I dig network intelligence - because it is the network part to that whole. The same with media - social is the part to that whole - and media is also a subset of that intelligence.

    Now if you sniff my rhetorical glue that isn't my doing, that is following. If Alex brother you are observing, then I really dig that.

    So many positive outcomes with the use of digital media. So many people are growing their businesses with ease today vs 10 years ago due to advancements made over time, beBee is a great example - meeting others through similar interests, getting to know them personally and many times friendship ensues along with possible business relationships as well. The possibilities are endless with the new age of digital media!

    I'd modify it just a little to the largest pipeline of human opportunity, ever, @Alex Desjardins. Of course, the attention part comes first, but unlike TV, which was the last great pipeline to human attention - the web is a two-way street.

    The ease with which we can learn that someone on the other side of the world has similar interests and thoughts and feelings is a game changer. Then the playing field levels out across humankind and we can start to right the injustices that came from the way that only certain people had access to information or resources or the right people to support their careers. A bit idealistic, but we see the evidence that kids care about more than buying things every day.

    Yes, I agree with you Alex. It is the future, actually it is the present already. With iOT, technology disruption and Social Media incorporating AI, Social Media is and will be the pipeline of human attention. Yes, with great things come risks. People have actually become less social with the number of hours spent on ''social'' media, which is sad. But that was inevitable. Goes without saying, overdoing anything is bad, so it is the individual's responsibility to get hooked to the web 2.0 networks or get trapped, two different things, I will vouch for the first one :) Good read.
