A new Pew Research Center survey finds that 55% of Millennials have posted a “selfie” on a social media site. No other generation is nearly inclined to do this. It’s not surprising behavior given that Millennials have grown up with the new digital technologies of the 21st century. They’re the heaviest users of the internet, cell phones and social media sites. Selfie


Overall, 26% of Americans have shared a “selfie” on a photo-sharing or social networking site. The Pew survey found that only about six-in-ten Baby Boomers and about a third of the Silent Generation said they knew what a “selfie” is.

However, there’s some self-awareness of the downside to the “selfie” culture. Nine-in-ten Millennials say people generally share too much information about themselves online, a view held by similarly lopsided proportions of all older generations.
