Millennials are shifting their focus from traditional businesses to social networks.
And they’re not afraid to do it without their business cards, which is one reason they’re now valued at more than $400 billion, according to a new report from the McKinsey Global Institute.
The McKinsey report, Millennials and Social Networking, shows that in the U.S., social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter are a primary source of engagement for millennials, with 36 percent of respondents reporting that they use the platforms at least some of the time.
Social media is the most-used medium of the millennial generation, according the report, which also shows that while the average age of a millennial is 25, they are more likely than other generations to be living in a household with an older sibling, parent or adult in charge of their lives.
Millennials are also more likely to have smartphones, which make them more social and connected, than any other generation.
But millennials are also taking on more traditional roles in their lives, with 44 percent of millennials having a job in their field.
In addition, millennials are starting to look for work outside of the traditional industries that traditionally provided their economic support.
According to McKinsey, millennials have become more social in the last decade and are more interested in social entrepreneurship, which offers them a chance to work on their own projects without having to rely on a traditional employer.
Social Network For millennials, the most important things about being an entrepreneur are the right people, and that includes finding a job, the report says.
Social networks are where millennials are finding a place to meet, build relationships and connect.
The Social Network for Gen-Y has the potential to transform the way businesses view their workforces, said Kristin Smith, a partner at McKinsey who wrote the report.
In a world of fast-moving technology and increasingly social platforms, millennials will be able to better manage their time, which will help them achieve greater social impact, she said.
Social networking has become a way for millennials to connect with their communities and businesses.
According the McKinsell report, one-third of millennials have an online presence, which includes sharing content, commenting on other people’s posts, tagging photos, and even creating pages.
Millennials also use social media to build relationships with friends and family, which can provide a sense of belonging.
They also can make connections with other companies, including with each other, as well as with influencers.
In this new digital age, there is also an opportunity for millennials in the workplace to connect and network, as their work can be used to influence companies.
Social network platforms have also become a place for younger generations to express themselves, especially in an age where many people are still trying to find ways to communicate in a socially responsible way.
McKinsey also found that millennials are more involved with their work than they were a decade ago, with 57 percent of young adults saying they are involved in their work, compared to 46 percent of older adults.
Millennials have also begun to experiment with different online platforms, like Snapchat and Instagram.
Millennials, who are often less likely to be in their workplace than other demographic groups, are finding ways to create content on these platforms that they would have never done on their traditional employers.
According for McKinsey: Social networks have become a great way for young people to connect to and connect to the people around them.
They are creating connections that are more meaningful and lasting.
