For as often as we use the term “millennial,” I’d be surprised if everyone knew what it actually meant. Are millennials kids? Teenagers? Are they hellbent on destroying everything we hold dear? None of those things are true, actually. In reality, millennials are people in their 20s-30s who grew up when the internet and technology were still in their infancy.
So, how do you explain that to those around you? Instead of telling people your actual age, just give them an example of some outdated technology you used in your lifetime. Check out some examples below and see if any of them apply to you!
