Can You Identify with the Characters in the Internship?
a person reaching young adulthood around the year 2000.
plural noun: millennials
A lot of words for baby boomers make no sense at all - Twerking (Moving one's bottom back & forth mid -squat); Selfie - a photograph of oneself taken with a camera phone; acronyms such as IDC (I don’t care), PML (p—ing myself laughing), and, with reference to cycling, MAMIL (middle-aged man in Lycra); Amazeballs - impressive or amazing; hence, (Of a man) strong, fit, and having well-developed muscles;
It isn't only language that has evolved. If you spend time with anyone under the age of 25, you will see how different life is through their own lives. Some are Millenials, all of them are "digital babies" who were capable of using TV remotes, playing games on an Play Station and may have been the first generation to use the iPhone launched on January 9, 2007 and downloading the first Mobile Apps in 2008. They streamed music rather than buy CDs and they watch their movies online through a DVD player. The world has evolved.
One of the characters in the movie the Internship says he has always done things the same way, but the same way isn't the most effective way. All the platforms mentioned in this article are interlinked somehow, so as you use each of them to promote your business, the reach is expanded. Whether you use social media for personal reasons or for business, it is definitely not going away. For the "older" generations it is a question of embrace what's new or get left behind. In the Private Rented Sector innovative agents use the services of the 5 biggest tech companies to promote themselves and communicate. WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter & Snapchat sell nothing but have a combined worth of 70 billion dollars and the inventors of these social media platforms are all under the age of 30. Businesses understand how important it is to engage with the new way of communicating. Most consumers live their lives on their mobile devices - android now has great number of users on its platform, with numbers reaching up to 1.4 billion, while iOS has about 505 million users. Whether using Social Media for personal or business matters, remember that by the click of a button, you can extend your reach. Are you in or are you out?
