It’s been a great first week here on the Dorobek Insider. We just wanted to take second to thank everyone who tuned in!
For this week’s Week In Review we wanted to tackle the hyper-connected world of Millennials.
We asked 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.
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. She was one of the authors of the report. She told me what you can expect from these hyper-connected millennials.
