Millennials Are Screwed - The Huffington Post
All of these trends—the cost of education, the rise of contracting, the barriers to skilled occupations—add up to an economy that has deliberately shifted the risk of economic recession and industry disruption away from companies and onto individuals. For our parents, a job was a guarantee of a secure adulthood. For us, it is a gamble. And if we suffer a setback along the way, there’s so little to keep us from sliding into disaster.

Millennials don’t really care about classic movies | New York Post
It appears that the “Golden Age of Cinema” has lost its sheen to the young over the years, as millennials are turning their back on classic movies.

A new study finds that less than a quarter of millennials have watched a film from start to finish that was made back in the 1940s or 50s and only a third have seen one from the 1960s.

Generation X More Addicted to Social Media Than Millennials, Report Finds - The New York Times
But a Nielsen report released last week shows that Americans from 18 to 34 are less obsessed with social media than some of their older peers are.

Adults 35 to 49 were found to spend an average of 6 hours 58 minutes a week on social media networks, compared with 6 hours 19 minutes for the younger group. More predictably, adults 50 and over spent significantly less time on the networks: an average of 4 hours 9 minutes a week.

In addition to this, Dr. Paul Redmond, an expert on generational theory was invited to input into the research and contribute to the analysis of the findings.

Designing for Young Adults (Ages 18–25)
While teens enjoy sites that provide interactive features like games and quizzes, young adults like interactivity only when it serves a purpose and supports their current task.
Teenagers tend to be poor readers, and they prefer nontext alternatives like multimedia content. Some young adults, particularly college students, are strong readers, but they still don’t enjoy reading large amounts of text online. They prefer content that is easy to scan.
A site targeted to teenagers will not hit the right tone for young adults. Young adults are sensitive to tone. They will feel insulted if they suspect the site is talking down to them, and will notice if the site is trying too hard to appear cool.
Young adults are much more skeptical of the information presented on websites. They demand more evidence to support claims than teenagers do.

What will the bank of the future look like? — TransferWise Ideas — Medium
will be the true democratisation of finance. The nature of the current “bundled” model of banking is fundamentally unfair. The costs of the system and the profits of the banks are overwhelmingly accrued from fees and charges that hit the poorest hardest. International payments are a prime example. A large proportion of those making transfers are those to whom the average 7.68% cost is a huge burden. As fintech extends opportunity and drives change, the end result will be the extension of financial opportunity to many more people. The fees charged will no longer be disproportionate to the service. and savings and investments will accrue better returns for the people that hold them.

Revealed: the 30-year economic betrayal dragging down Generation Y’s income | World news | The Guardian
The full scale of the financial rout facing millennials is revealed today in exclusive new data that points to a perfect storm of factors besetting an entire generation of young adults around the world.

A combination of debt, joblessness, globalisation, demographics and rising house prices is depressing the incomes and prospects of millions of young people across the developed world, resulting in unprecedented inequality between generations.

A Guardian investigation into the prospects of millennials – those born between 1980 and the mid-90s, and often otherwise known as Generation Y – has found they are increasingly being cut out of the wealth generated in western societies.

Where 30 years ago young adults used to earn more than national averages, now in many countries they have slumped to earning as much as 20% below their average compatriot. Pensioners by comparison have seen income soar.

The Smartphone is Eating the TV, Nielsen Says - Fortune
A new study of media and attention by Nielsen Co. confirms what has now become conventional wisdom: Smartphones are winning and traditional television is losing, especially when it comes to viewers in the most desirable 18 to 34 demographic.

Nielsen also says that traditional TV viewing by all age groups peaked in the 2009-2010 season, and has been on the decline ever since. Until that point, the audience for TV had grown every year since 1949.

The study is Nielsen’s first attempt to come up with a comprehensive measurement of video-viewing behavior across traditional TV, the web, mobile phones, and other devices.

The data underlying the report shows that among 18 to 34-year-olds, the use of smartphones, tablets, and TV-connected devices such as streaming boxes or game consoles increased by more than 25% in May compared with the same period a year earlier, to about 8.5 million people per minute.

The Battle to Bank Millennials
New generations of young and technology-savvy Americans face a highly complex and uncertain economic environment with a degree of choice and consumer freedom never seen before. As a result, banks need to help Millennials not only to access credit but also to navigate the intricacy of their financial lifecycle. If banks don't tackle these challenges, non-banks will.

Abercrombie, Delia's, Aeropostale: all your old favorite stores are in big trouble - Vox
All the places where 16-year-old you bought faux-beaten-up jeans and flannel shirts are fading fast. Aeropostale and American Eagle face tanking stock prices and Delia's has declared bankruptcy, as the AP reported in a recent roundup. And on Tuesday, Abercrombie and Fitch's CEO Mike Jeffries said he was stepping down after 11 consecutive quarters of sales declines.

High schoolers used to covet Abercrombie's expensive clothes (not to mention its catalogs, featuring models who, ironically enough, wore little clothing). These days, the company's stock price is anemic.

What happened to all your old favorite mall haunts? Here are four trends that helped bring them all down.

Read what happens when a bunch of over-30s find out how Millennials handle their money - Quartz
This morning, one of us posted a link about the announcement of a new bluetooth-based payments app into one of Quartz’s editorial chat rooms. We often use these chats to discuss how to cover news. This time, however, the result was a rather revealing clash of generational cultures about money, privacy, and over-sharing. We decided to publish a lightly-edited transcript (we removed the less-relevant comments and re-ordered a handful of them for the sake of clarity). Those people whose names are underlined are over 30, and those without an underline are under 30. We’ve dubbed this underline the “Venmo line,” for reasons that will become apparent.
