Subject: What things do Old Millennials and Young Millennials have *in common*?

Written By: Zelek3 on 06/22/18 at 4:30 pm

People are always going on and on about the differences between Old Millennials and Young Millennials like when they got Internet access, social media usage, meme culture, etc etc etc but what things would you say they have *in common*?

I don't wanna get.into specific cutoff discussion, so let me say I'm using Pews 1981-1996 definition, but feel free to use the definition you prefer. In this instance I'm comparing a 23 year old (born 95) to a 33 year old (born 85) here. Here's some I can think of

-Rugrats
-Friends
-Dexters Lab
-2D animated movies (was still holding on in the early 2000s, then Home on the Range killed it)
-Games free of DLC and microtransactions
-CRT television
-Star Wars prequels
-Lord of the Rings
-Xtreme culture (lasted early 90s-mid 2000s)
-Elementary school free of social media

Assuming the millennial generation is between 1981-1996, I would say 1981 and 1996 borns recall a time before Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, & smartphones. They had significantly less social media during their childhood than the plurals & both remember the 2000s (Gen Y decade)

AdultSwim
Cartoon Network
Marvel movies
Boy Bands/Girl groups in the late 90s/early 00s. Both 90s teen girls, and 90s little girls loved them
Skeet Ulrich- teen girls in the 90s swooned over him in Scream, young adult women now swoon over him on Riverdale
Green Day - popular among teens in 1994; popular among teens from 2005 to now

Liberal political views I think, for many of them, or at least brought up with rather liberal political views.
