2015/11/20

Are you a millennial ?  If you are a (relatively) young person, say 1985-1997, you may be.

Although "Millennial" is a definition usually applied to American young people, kids from other countries may share some of the same traits.

Why are they called Millennials anyway ?  The reason is that they reached their teenage or young adult years around the time that the Millennium changed, in the year 2000.

However we define them, Millennials are a very important group in American society, more important than their parents, the so-called "Generation X", (people born in late 1960s or early 1970s).

Millennials shre some characteristics, some positive, some negative.  For example...

Millennials are "Tech savvy".  This means that they know about, and are very comfortable with modern technology.  In fact, most Millennials couldn't imagine life without their smart phones, PCs, tablets, MP3 players and social networks.
