The generation raised on phones


Recommended Posts

We are at a point where there is a completely new generation raised on cell phones. I watched a quick video yesterday comparing two generations and I'm in the older group, of course! The two were asked to pretend they were talking on the phone. The way they held up their hand was completely different from one another. Then they were asked to take a picture, and the little girl did a "selfie" type. haha The old timer in my generation did it the old-fashioned way where you hold a real camera in front of you. 

What do you think of this generation that is raised on a phone?

I actually think it will be a good thing for them in the long run.  The current adult generation has been slowly introduced to tech over time and some still avoid it.  This has created numerous issues when it comes to raising kids and handling careers that have moved to the tech space. 

At the end of the day, tech is here and they will be better off being enveloped in it all their life.  Ethically, I also believe their generation will grow up to handle tech, social media life, and big tech companies in a much more logical and effective fashion then then the current leadership.

Granted, I do see some hiccups along the way, but every major generational change has had those.  Although these hiccups are likely to be much more public due to the society they will affect and appear to much worse at face value, but likely much less by direct comparison.
