Subject: Do you think the Mid 2010’s felt more like early 10’s or late 10’s?

Inspired from Tyrannosaurus Rex’s quote. “Not sure if I should ask this, but do you think that the mid 2010's felt more like the early 2010's or the late 2010's?”

I consider 2013 to be part of the early 2010's; I'm just one of those people who believe that years ending with a 3 are early.

2014-2015: More like the early 2010's
*This was the peak of hipster culture.
*Though there was the SJW vs. Alt-right drama, it didn't escalate to bigger proportions yet.
*No one really had a clue what emo rap was yet.
*Trap probably didn't become popular yet (I am not sure about this one)
*Trump was either viewed as a candidate (2015) or a billionaire (2014), but not as someone who would become a president.
*This was still a world before Brexit.

2016: More like the late 2010's
*Hipster culture was declining.
*The SJW vs. Alt-right drama became even bigger.
*Some people heard about emo rap by the end of the year, but not a lot.
*Trap becomes popular. (I am not sure about this one)
*Trump wins the 2016 election.
*This was post-Brexit.

2015 is the perfect segway between early and late 10s. Since it was still the Obama era, college students were still mostly millennials, Wii-U era was still in full effect and 90s nostalgia still dominated the internet in contrast 2015 was when snapchat was really big, trap music really dominated, Trump starts his campaign, 2000s borns were entering high school, 8th genoration of gamming was still going strong, and EDM music was in-effect.

I can see that. Also, by late 2015, every single high schooler was Gen Z.

Neither.

The mid 2010s (2014-2016) were the mid 2010s.

2013 was the last year of the early 2010s, but 1993 was not an early year.

I usually see 1993 labeled as "early 90's". I also usually see 1983 and 2003 labeled as early years in their respective decades.

However, I seem to be the only one here who believes that 2013 is early 2010's.

I believe 2013 is early 2010s. While the later part has mid 2010s trends popping up, I still think the whole year is early 2010s but by 2014, it's mid-2010s full force.

2013 was early 2010's from a political perspective.

2013 was the last year before the Ukrainian tensions, "incels", SJW vs. Alt-right, legal recreational marijuana sales, and the rise of ISIS.

From a pop cultural perspective, I would define 2013 as a split year between the early 2010's and mid 2010's; it serves as a bridge between the two.

However, if I got to choose whether 2013 is an early or mid 2010's year, I would choose early 2010's.

2014, on the other hand, was absolutely (and indisputably) mid 2010's.

I hardly can distinguish the late-2010s from the mid-2010s tbh. Not that it is a bad thing, both periods are part from the same decade after all.

Indeed they're both from the same decade, but a lot of trends from the mid-2010s aren't popular any more besides social media. The whipping and the nae nae dance is super dated nowadays.

Indeed they're both from the same decade, but a lot of trends from the mid-2010s aren't popular any more besides social media.

All the main trends of the mid-2010s are still popular though. The "Netflix and chill" lifestyle was fully ubiquitous by the beginning of the mid-2010s. Streaming sites and YouTube are the main ways of music consumption in both the mid and late 2010s, which wasn't the case in the early 2010s. Social media like Instagram became fully dominating on the lifestyle and fashion domain in the mid-2010s and continued on, while they were still seen as simple sites to share your everyday life on in the early-10s. As well as some other stuff which weren't the case yet in the early 10s like Apple and Samsung's monopole on the smartphone market, YouTube being the centerpiece of entertainment or the growing privacy concerns with drones and social media using one's information.

Politically the mid-2010s are by far more similar to the late-2010s, where the terrorism and security concerns which have given way to harsher political views and decisions (which made way to Trump's election and Brexit), while in the early-2010s it was mainly unrelated economic concerns.

Even Vine which is completely unique to the mid-10s has its shadow still lungering on pop culture nowadays (from Cardi B to the Jake Paul brothers).

Just because of few irrevalant stuff aren't popular anymore (which happens with any period anyway), doesn't make them widely different eras. "Whip Nae Nae" for instance isn't that irrevalant, I still see widely used on dance videos on Instagram for example and it surpassed 1 billion views this year.

I say late 2010s because honestly I think that the only thing has changed is the advance of the far right. Fashion trends for men from the mid-2010s looked like we were going socially backwards (save for very few exceptions) in my opinion.

I agree with a lot of the things you said, I just paid attention to the music, memes, and the fashion. I mean, you have to admit the music sounded different between the two, mid 2010s were pop dominated while late 2010s is rap dominated. Maybe I'm looking at 2014-2015 because those years felt old to me at this point. Politics, technology, and social media, however still remains the same, except Donald Trump was irrelevant in 2014-early 2015.

IMO, 2014 lean towards the early 2010s, 2015 can lean either way, and 2016 lean towards the late 2010s.

There is one thing I can disagree with is the Vine. The shadow of Vine is still lingering in pop culture today because of nostalgia, but people view Cardi B as a rapper now than a Viner, same thing with Jake and Logan Paul, they're considered Youtubers now.

You're right about how they both aren't widely different eras, I just think that they're some differences that can be distinguished between the two.

I would say that 2015 felt a little bit more like the early 2010's than the late 2010's, but that's just me.

One of the things that 2015 can lean towards the late 2010s is Donald Trump. I view 2014-2015 as uniquely mid-2010s years while 2016 is a transitional year like 2013. First half of 2016 is more mid-2010s while the second half is more like late 2010s.

I would also say that the legalization of gay marriage along with the Charleston church shooting making racial tensions worse could make 2015 lean towards the late 2010's as well.

The one thing I really hate about the late 2010s is that the US is in the midst of a full-fledged backlash against Obama and is throwing a collective tantrum about gay marriage, transgender visibility, and the decline of fundamentalist Christian influence in American culture.  That tantrum is called Donald Trump.  Racism, homophobia, misogyny, transphobia, etc is all in vogue again.  People cannot accept an America that isn't for white heterosexual Christians first.  It's threatening the very existence of our society because there's no rolling back 70 years of civil rights without a fight.

I'm going to answer this from the perspective of someone who was in middle school all throughout the mid-2010's and knows what the culture was like back then.

2014 and 2015 are definitely a lot more like the early 2010's than the late 2010's. Not a lot of people knew Trump would become president yet. Hip-hop sounded a lot closer to the 2012 era than the 2017 era. People were still using Skype, ooVoo, and Kik as the main ways of communicating with one another.

2016 is when it starts to lean more late 2010's since that was when Trump was elected, and Vine was officially gone. 2016 was also a changeful year for music as well. Skype was no longer the "in thing" anymore. It's all about Discord and Facetime at this point.

I mostly agree here.  In 2014 and 2015 trap was on the upswing but there was still a lot of bronze-age style songs still popular.  I miss when Trump was a buffoon candidate that nobody took seriously.  I had forgotten about ooVoo.  I remember it from the late '00s and very early '10s but don't remember seeing it much after that.  By 2012, Skype was the big thing.  Now that is dead and everyone is on Discord.  I think 2014 and 2015 culture was still predominantly Millennial while today, I think we are on the Gen Z side of the cusp.  As has been discussed ad nauseam, 2014 and 2015 were the peak years of hipster culture and you can't discuss the mid 10s without talking about hipsters.

I really think the foundation for the late '10s was laid on June 26, 2015 when SCOTUS legalized same-sex marriage.  It sent rural America into a frenzy and it's one of the core reasons conservative Americans are currently so angry.

Thank you mqg96. People underestimate just how 2015 played a role in shifting the decade. While 2015 had a lot of early 10s elements it also paved the way for the late 10s with Trump, Discord being introduced, Youtube Red, Youtube 10th anniversary, Legalization of Gay Marriage, Youtube post G-plus era. I know 2016 had a lot more late 10s influence but 2015 was the perfect mid 10s year because it's literally halfway between 2010 and 2020 so it's going to have elements of both ends of the decade.

I don't know. But I can feel that we're in a whole new era now. Definitely not the 2020's yet, but I feel like the 2020's will be different than the 2000's and 2010's. Like I could put the 00's and 10's together.

The late 20th century, especially the 1980's and 1990's is feeling like a long time ago now. Like it's a whole other era. Like what the 60's felt like to the 1980's.
