Ironically, it's not so much about communication as it is about information. The addiction is to receive information, either through posts, statuses, photo's, pins, and so on and so forth. Not to communicate with our friends, but to see what they are doing and what is happening in their live's.

I saw this clip and I agree with him completely! It's not the millennials problem that they are like that. They were raised that way.

I can not even begin to describe the headache that i get from dealing with millennials. They are so unfocused and lack the discipline that they need to be a successful adult.

Yes I believe they are. My nieces and nephews always have their face buried in their phones or tablets. It will take some scolding and feet stomping to get them to put it away for dinner. This is depressing. Kids have no social skills outside of social media. How ironic.

I am worried because we are resilient. Don't give up on us just yet.

I think it's not only millennials that are glued to their phones. I think 90% of the world population is glued to the phone - 10% being babies and old people.

I agree! I am guilty of that some times. When I catch myself doing it, I stop but sometimes, you just can't help it.

Me too! but then again, i'd rather check my work emails every so often than be swamped at work. That's just me though.

I am a Millennial, but I am even shocked watching my little cousins grow up with tablets and smartphones. They never go outside!

I am guilty of this. I don't go anywhere without my phone! And I check my social media constantly!

This is true! My niece who's seven would rather stay in bed with her iPad than go out to the mall. Her parents have to bribe her to get out of bed. That's how lazy she is. Absurd! I am afraid of how she'll turn out.

Yes! It's a great concern. We're so accustomed to having our phones and being on our phones, unless we're sleeping

I agree. I am guilty of this too. My wife has to remind me often to put it down.

Guilty too! It's kind of hard to disconnect from my phone. It's high addictive.

We are all guilty of this. It's the downside of technology.

I agree but it's not only the millenials. I see my parents hooked on the phone too.

With a powerful phone, it can't be helped to be"addicted" to it. You get information, communication from it.

I think we are all guilty of being addicted to our smart phones. I sometimes I find myself staring at it for hours on end.
