Gripe: when people still refer to millennials as 18-34. Millennials are not a static age range, they’re a birth year range (usually 1982-1996) so millennials are now ~23-37, great thanks ✌🏼

That’s how I feel about briefs with demos. If you want to reach “millennials” you probably mean the “millennial mindset,” because let’s be real some 20 somethings act like teenagers (some in their 30s, too). And if you want parents 25-34, it’s extremely shortsighted when parents can be as young as 18-24 or 35+, depending where you are in the US. Age ain’t nothing but a number.

Apropos nothing serious, I was being a snoop, errr, watching a focus group in Columbus OH last year and one of the 12 hangry people in the group in the room kept calling Millennials “Millenniums.” Kind of charming.

Meh.

Yes. The “youth market” is now Gen Z, significantly different from Millennials in many ways .

A Millennial is someone who:
- Knew more than three normal friends with normal cell phones in high school (ie: no rich-boy Zach Morris brick phones).
- Was too young to vote for Nader/Bush/Gore.
- Never got to have a drink indoors at a bar in New York and see an ashtray.

There is a small window where one could be a Millennial and was old enough to vote in that election, or had turned 21 a few months before the smoking ban. That’s the borderline.

23 year olds are millennials? But they BARELY remember the rugrats.
