You think Facebook is the greatest thing ever created since you can share every single thing that's on your mind.

No one shaved in the 2010s haha. Some beards made the Taliban looked clean-shaven. ;D

This!

;D  ;D  ;D


1) Flannel shirts should have begin and ended with the great Neil Young in 1972.

2) Indie rock is so soppily vapid now that it is unlistenable. And that includes acoustic artists. And mind you, I am a lifelong lover of folk and acoustic oriented music. But listen to any of them today and the only word that comes to mind is "babyish". Does anyone else notice this? What the hell is that baby voice? Especially with women? What happened to strong sounding women in music?

3) Only old people are on Facebook now. It's a bloated nothingness.

Shaving wasn't that frequent in the '10s.

I think the 2010s cultural influence will be with us for a long while. BLM, Trumpism, Minecraft, Snapchat, Instagram, and other things will probably last for a couple more years at least.

I agree, we're only in 2021. 2019 was only two years ago. I think this question might fit better in 2025 or so.

We are not in the 2010s anymore... Covid marked the start of the 2020s. It's about time you guys understood that.

I'm aware of the impact COVID has, but it didn't automatically kill off 2010s influences. I can compare this period to other early eras like the early 2010s, early 2000s, or early 90s.

It may not have immediately kill off 2010 influences, but it brought in so many new ones, and such a different way of being, and even a new way of looking at things, as to overshadow those earlier influences, and even render them insignificant. It works that way too, you know. The 2020s are HERE. It is a new era, READY OR NOT.

1. You still use a Blu-Ray player
2. You still describe all homosexual communities as just LGBT and not with any additional letters or plus signs (the World Almanac added them all in, QIA+ with their 2021 edition)
3. You still play with Nintendo 3DS
4. You're always looking forward to that next Marvel superhero film
5. Your wireless coverage is still 4G
6. You still use Windows 7 or 8
7. You think Millennials are still the youth demographic
8. You binge watch a marathon of The Big Bang Theory
9. You shop in store at a legacy department store (hopefully this will be temporary)
10. The Black Eyed Peas, One Direction, and Adele are your most listened to artists (though they'll endure for awhile)

It's just amazing how rapid this decade shift is happening compared to the past couple ones. Even the 1980s-90s transition wasn't as rapid as this. You have to go back to the 1970s-80s to find a comparable one.

Well early 2010s includes the 2010s in general as well.

It was only two years ago, though. Do you feel any difference in culture besides politics and COVID? Most decades don't really get their groove until about the 4th or 5th year into it, before that it's really just a continuation of the previous decade.

Yes, this time there IS a difference. Because of the virus, TV shows are being made differently, music is being recorded differently. People work differently. People wear masks. You think that isn't a difference in "fashion" from two years ago?? The virus has changed the culture. Or think about this...everywhere I go I see discarded masks all over the sidewalk and street. Did THAT happen two years ago? Like it or not, that's part of the culture. Covid is DRIVING THE CULTURE.

I can't believe people actually think we're not yet in the 2020s culturally. If I were to go to sleep tonight and wake up on even December 31st, 2019, I'd instantly know I'm in a different year/time period as soon as I stepped outside. That's how you know.

There's a difference between time passing from December 31st 2019 11:59PM and thinking things are going to change as soon as date hits January 1st 2020 12:00am. Yeah, obviously it's a new decade, but that doesn't mean things will magically change as soon as the clock strikes twelve. All change comes with time, we didn't magically just get smartphones and the Xbox 360, as soon as January 1st 2000 rolled around, did we?

I wasn't talking about if you were to go to sleep on January 1st, 2020 and wake up on December 31st, 2019. I was talking about if you were to wake up in any time post-mid March 2020 and wake up on December 31st, 2019. January 2020 was still culturally in the Late 2010s.

Yes, all change comes with time, and the transition into the Early 2020s started in March 2020 with a whole new way of life hitting us hard.

January 2021 is culturally in the Early 2020s.

That's not what I meant. January 1, 2020 was still culturally in the Late 2010s. The cultural Early 2020s started in March 2020 with a whole new way of life hitting us hard.

Post-mid March 2020, and especially now, it would feel very different to go to sleep and wake up on December 31, 2019.

2020 as a whole was a very transitional year, January and December 2020 felt nothing alike.

January 2021 is culturally the Early 2020s.

Exactly.

2020 is the only decade where my point is moot, any other previous decade though, my point still stands. Yeah, Covid is a change with people wearing masks and stuff like that, but it's not like we're living in some type of dystopian future where everything is completely unrecognizable compared to the previous year.

The coronavirus looming over everyone in the world's head and now mutating, nationwide protests over police violence in the Summer of 2020, and an election resulting in political tensions climaxing with domestic terrorists raiding the US capitol on January 6th, make January 2021 pretty damn different from 2019 and even Early 2020.

Not to mention that COVID-19 wasn't even a minor issue in 2019, it was literally UNHEARD of for the entirety, and didn't even EXIST until November or December. Today, it has affected and killed so many.

It's just coincidence that it just happened in the third month of the decade. From the 1990s to 2000s, it was a year and 9 months into it. For the 2000s to 2010s, it was actually a long transition between 2008 to 2012 and it was hard to tell when one ended and the other one began. The 1980s to 90s was a similar transition although the events like Berlin Wall and fall of Soviet Union which marked the end of the Cold War occurred around the turn of the decade.
