Excerpt from The Federalist
Written by Ben Domenech
For being the largest generation in American history, the Millennial generation inspires a ridiculous degree of overgeneralization. It is possible for a generation of this size to include more entrepreneurs and more slackers, more libertarians and more socialists, more dedicated believers and more unchurched nones. It is also a generation split in two given the very different experiences within the cohort as it relates to social media.
If you were born in the first half of the 1980s, you came to cell phones and social media in college and professionally; if you were born in 1990 or beyond, you have no memory of a world without cell phones and social media. These have very different lessons in how you view the world, and in your susceptibility to viewing it entirely through the warped lens social media experiences can create.
