Growing up in a hyper-connected world – What you should expect from the Millennials

What impact will the FaceMySpaceTwitGoogle+ world have on the young people who are growing up in this hyperconnected world?

Teens and young adults have grown up digital — always connected, on 24-seven… they count on the Internet as their external brains.

But a new survey of tech experts by the Pew Internet and American Life Project finds that there are some side effects. Many of them are good, but there is concern about a thirst for instant gratification and quick fixes, and a lack the ability to think deeply.

Janna Anderson is the director of the Imagining the Internet Center at Elon University and one of the authors of the report. She told Chris Dorobek on the Dorobek Insider show what you can expect from these hyper-connected millennials.

I’m ultra-connected, I need to be as someone who is in communications, etc. It does worry me though, I don’t really want people to reach me via text 24/7, yet everyone expects an immediate response (I do as well). I also agree about not thinking deeply. I literally don’t know what I’d do without my smartphone even though I just got it a few months ago. My BIGGEST problem is that it’s making people not interact with each other. The amount of dates I’ve seen where both people are on their smart phones is nuts, but I can’t help to watch. It’s so interesting to me.
