28 Examples of Millennial Communication

From Video Confession Apps to Anonymous Social Apps

— July 22, 2014 — Tech
The art of communication has changed drastically for younger generations who are growing more dependent on mobile devices. These examples of millennial communication show just how different it is today. In place of telephones and even email, children, teens and young adults are favoring social media apps to facilitate quick and fun conversations between two or more people.

Although older individuals might scoff at these examples of millennial communication, it is interesting to note how wide people's social circles have become because of them. Not only are millennials communicating with friends and family, they are also in touch with strangers. Not to mention that such networks provide an intimate outlet for emotions and thoughts that would otherwise remain locked up in personal diaries. Technology has evolved communication and storytelling in surprising ways.
