In defense of generation "I Am"
The Millennials, that’s who. The # hashtag generation.
The narcissists generation who produced and viraled the most powerful tagline “I am” are also the most socially conscious (recall that most who are initially at the forefront in social media during times of disasters, I could thingk of the of the powerful Yolanda (typhoon Haiyan), are today’s generation).
The generation who likes to be liked and to be further liked, who needed praises and rewards, and seek validation day-in and day-out (think of those who got ribbons, in pre-school, just-for showing up) are the same ones who produced billion dollars c/o Facebook and social media. They are also the ones who are the forefront at checking the greed that social media has spawned.
They are now called the Generation Wuss or generation weakling, undecided and unsure. But they are the generation which produced OccupyWall Street in the US and the Arab Spring in the Middle East and OccupyCentral and Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong.
I have to defend them because I produced three Millenials.
