I don't feel like a millennial, even though I'm part of Generation Z.
1. I barely use my iPhone.
2. I don't do selfies.
3. I don't do stupid challenges from Twitter.
4. I don't have a Vine account.
5. I barely use Netflix.
6. I don't text that much, nor use stupid abbreviations to respond to other people.
7. I don't like this decade's pop culture.
I didn't watch that video but i read the description. I think some points are nearly accurate. According to latest reports, generation Y is still largest in social networking. More specifically people born in 80s. Also the Selfi trend is more common in HS-college aged peoples. (I consider people aged 15+ are gen Yers)
I am addicted to my iPad but not my phone, since I am pretty bad at typing on a phone. The games I play work well in iPad but not iPhone (rhythm games).
I binge-watch animes I downloaded, but I have no Netflix.
I barely text, I barely make calls, and I barely use twitter. I never abbreviate. I was forced to create one for free daily freebies in a mobile game anyway! I totally don't relate to oversharing thing. So overall I guess I am not.
This seems to be about the negative stereotype of millennials... I mean individually none of these things are 'bad' and are certainly things characteristic of some gen-Y's and less of older generations, but put together and presented as an identity of sorts just makes us look shallow.

The only one of those I can really relate to is that I Google everything. My Generation X parents actually use their phones more than I do, share things on social media while I don't even have an account on those sites, and watch Netflix more than I do.
My question is whether someone born in the late 90s (September 1996-1999) would better relate to someone born in the late 80s (September 1986-1989) or to the late 2000s (September 2006-2009)? As someone born in May 1997, I feel like I would relate better to those born in December 1989 than...
Ford mondeo (because my dad has always had them through my whole life and they're just great) , ferrari aurea (dream car), bugatti, any type of bentley or merc or aston martin :tongue:
I've always wanted a chrome car :proud:
To expand. I hear millennials complain a lot about how Boomers came of age in the most booming economy and left very little for Millennials to eke out a good life on. Whether or not those claims are entirely true, I don't want get into. But, like pretty much all Gen Y/Millennials, I grew up in...
