Generation Y and Social Media

In Uncategorized on April 5, 2011 at 8:11 pm

I’m a part of Generation Y. This means a few things:

  • I was born between 1982-1994
  • I am no stranger to technology
  • I was raised on the internet
  • A lot of my socializing has been on the web

As such, social media has been a huge part of my development into an adult. In fact, I thought it was somewhat odd to even talk about the advantages and disadvantages of websites such as Facebook and Twitter in some of my classes because that was never factored into my decision process of whether or not I would partake in these sites.

When I was 14, I made a MySpace, then a Facebook profile at 16, a Twitter account at 18, and now that I’m 20, I’ve started blogging and thinking about joining sites geared more towards the professional world. It’s been a pretty natural progression in my life, and I definitely anticipate myself continuing to be enthusiastic about social media.
