Millennials?

by @ 10:28 am. Filed under Archived, Pop Culture

They’re called Millennials…“They” are the newest generation of consumers. Born between 1980 and 2000, the oldest of these Millennials is only 25. According to a recent New York Time’s article, by the year 2010 the Millennials will out number prime consuming “Baby Boomers” and “The Gen-Xers”. Even now their likes/dislikes, wants/needs and technology habits are shaping how information is sent and received… and what information is sent and received. They do not read newspapers “Papers are clunky and big” according to the Times article. They do not watch “prime time” news or TV for that matter. Rather, Millennials download their favorite shows and music and enjoy them commercial free on an iPod or PC. It’s an “on demand” generation…When they want to know the weather they log into weather.com. What were yesterday’s football scores? It’s NFL.com. Is school canceled? Millennials do not glue themselves to a long, alphabetical, radio list. They receive a text message directly from the news source. Without doubt, they are turning the information world upside down and making traditional media providers shutter. We have already seen the demise of the 6 o’clock National News. Newspaper circulation figures throughout the country are plummeting… And most of that was the work of “The GenXers”…what are these “kids” going to do?
