The Uprise of Millennials
The most studied and talked about generation to date is Millennials. They are the first generation in history that have grown up totally immersed in a world of digital technology, which has shaped their identities and created lasting political, social, and cultural attitudes.
Millennials, also known as Generation Y, is a generational cohort born between the years of 1980 to 2000. They have experienced a unique way of life that changed the way their parents lived, worked and consumed products. Their lifestyles and attitudes of the millennial generation is one of the fundamental causes of the rapidly changing world and how things are done.
