Oct 12, 2017 8:59 AM - According to the Census Bureau you are considered a Millennial if you were born between 1981 and 2000. If you were born before 1981 and want to be able to communicate in this digital age, then you need to do so like a millennial. It was recently pointed out to me that by putting two spaces before starting a new sentence was really showing my age and in an effort to communicate more like a millennial, I would have to adapt their behaviors. Why do we care how we communicate? We should all care because millennials have overtaken Baby Boomers as America's largest generation, with a predicted 81 million millennials in 2036, according to Pew Research Center. As millennials enter the workforce, we'll need to keep up with their way of communicating.
