Interacting has changed as Generation Y clamors the work scene. This week we saw a collage of ways that Gen Y has related to each other, whether in person or through song, pictures, or posts. Take a look at how this Generation is creatively interacting with one another.
FREELANCERS AND WORKSPACE
Working from home is not uncommon among Generation Y employees nowadays, but what about freelancers? These employees don’t have a place where they can bring their clients to meetings unless it’s a Starbucks or their home. With the rise of freelancers in the workforce, there are now co-working spaces, daily rental arrangements and virtual offices on the rise. These cheap, accessible spaces really speak to the saying “sharing is caring” as they help shape the workspace for the new generation and the way they decide to interact with one another.
SOMETHING MORE IRONIC THAN A HIPSTER’S STATUS
Social media is hard. It begs for our attention and it constantly reminds us what other people are doing, or not doing. The web has become a space for people to interact in whether they are far apart or next to each other-it doesn’t matter the distance. So why then, are we posting things to our sites for someone who may not even be using the sites?
WHAT DOES YOUR INSTAGRAM SAY ABOUT YOU?
Do you have an Instagram? Chances are you do, and you post about your daily feats, meals and self-indulgences on an addicting daily basis. Neuroscientists have found in studies that memories made in high school are our most memorable, so what does this have to do with Instagram? Turns out you can learn a lot about someone through their interactions on the app according to what they post!
GEN Y EXPERIENCES IN THE FORM OF A COMIC
Want to create lasting memories about your relations with others? Take a look at these three different comics: Knisley, Darcomic and Octopus Pie that connect work/life interactions together in a fun, amusing, and interesting way. Try out your own and stay tune for posts to come for one of our own attempts at the illustration-friendly story-telling.
HELLO, BOOK OF MORMONS
Lastly, you should check out this young girl who takes interactions to the next level. This thirteen year old year girl wrote, produced, and performed this mash-up of the Book of Mormons and Mean Girls to create a brilliant parody. The song will have you thinking of ways to mash-up your own parody for days.
