Understanding Gen Z

Born roughly between 1997–2012, Gen Z’s have grown up in a fast world dominated by cutting-edge technology and instant connectivity. They are often characterized as digital natives, who have been exposed 24/7 to smartphones, social media platforms, and the internet from a young age. However, this early exposure has shaped their communication styles, entertainment choices, and social interactions.

A distinguishing characteristic of Gen Z is their strong support for diversity, inclusivity, and social justice. They actively speak up for issues like climate change, LGBTQ+ rights, and racial equality by using social media to promote voices and push for change. Gen Z appreciates authenticity in brands and influencers, favouring those who are transparent and socially conscious to them.

The Millennial POV

Millennials are the people who were born roughly between 1981 and 1996. They came of age during a period of rapid tech advancement and economic change. They are the real ones who witnessed the rise of the internet, social media, and the aftermath of significant global events like 9/11 and other crises.

This generation is known for its tech-savviness. Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter took birth in this era. They pioneered the gig economy and popularised concepts such as remote work and digital nomadism. Millennials prioritize experiences over materialism, driving trends in travel, wellness, and personal development.

Pop Culture And Trends

Pop culture is a battleground where generational preferences and influences collide. Millennials are inclined towards nostalgic content, reboots of beloved franchises, and alternative forms of entertainment such as 90s animated TV shows like Dexter’s Laboratory, the rise of indie music, and other niche content that resonates with their interests and values.

On the contrary, Gen Z’s entertainment landscape is characterised by short attention spans, meme-driven humour, Gen Z slang, and viral challenges. They typically consume content on platforms like Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat, where authenticity and relatability reign supreme.

Enter Gen Alpha

Generation Alpha a.k.a. Gen Alpha is the term used to describe people born between 2010 and 2025.  Check out this hilarious video where a father-daughter duo brings in infotainment about the ‘Gen Alpha‘ slang that even we Gen Zs are unaware of!

“It’s Givin Fashion Goals”

Beyond pop culture, Gen Z loves to mix bold and diverse styles by blending vintage and modern pieces while also putting a high priority on sustainability in fashion. Their clothing choices are versatile and often gender-neutral, drawing inspiration from trends online.

On the other hand, Millennials lean towards minimalistic designs, athleisure wear, or timeless apparel, highlighting comfort and quality.

Who’s Winning Then?

Determining which generation is “better” is subjective and depends on the individual’s perspective. However, Millennials have already paved the way for Gen Z in tech, culture, and society. Whereas, Gen Z is shaping the future with activism and influencing others for good things. Ultimately, both generations bring unique strengths, contributing to cultural diversity. Embracing the contribution of both worlds can help build an inclusive future. What do you think?
