Generation M by Min Qiao and Michelle Hu of Y-Press

September 8, 2010 in Youthcast by Molly Adams

How many screens have you ever gotten going at once? For the Young People of Today, three is not uncommon. Min Qiao and Michelle Hu filed a report with Y-Press as part of a series on teens and the media. We all know that young people use more media than other generations, but what does this mean for this generation outside of electronics? And just so you know, this information overload is not necessarily a good thing. There, that should make the older people reading this blog happy.
Not a Millenial? Not sure? Why not take the quiz, How Millenial Are You?, by the Pew Research Center! You'll see that being part of Generation M doesn't just have to do with whether or not you leave your cell phone turned on and right by your head while you sleep. This Generation of 18-29 year olds are also more politically and socially engaged and more affluent and educated than any previous generation.
