At the risk of speaking for all Millennials, I’m going to go ahead and say we almost have an innate need to know everything that happens the moment it happens. It’s a part of our “FOMO” (fear of missing out) culture.
There’s no arguing that digital technology and social media have dramatically reshaped the way we consumes news. Gone are the days when people bought newspapers or turned on the 6 p.m. news to catch up on current events.
Now, our smart phones give us instant access to the news of the moment. It’s a news junkie’s dream, really. News organizations can send push alerts straight to our phones to give us breaking updates — such as the moment Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced she was battling pneumonia or when Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt.
And if you’re not signed up for those pesky push notifications, you’ll surely get the news in your Facebook or Twitter feed way before you’ll read it in a newspaper.
Love it or hate it, we live in a more connected world. We are constantly plugged in to what’s going on. And I kind of love it.
Kids these days! Lazy, entitled and self-absorbed, amirite? Well, we’re here to remind you – we’re rocking our bad rep just like every generation that came before us (lookin’ at you Baby Boomers and Gen Xers). Kendall and Jessica are here to bridge the Generation Gap and remind you that there’s more that unites us than divides us. Let us be your guides into the crazy lives of your kids and grandkids. Tune in every Tuesday and Thursday!
