In probably one of it’s drier definitions yet, Google* describes   this 24-35 yr old demographic as:

That sounds like everybody.  The mobile generation, the iPhone generation has influenced all other demographics, so we are all becoming millennials.  We owe them a great deal for introducing us to many new societal shifts like:

First Adopter Adaptability

Brand / Cause Loyalty


Social Networks

Online Brand Critique / Feedback

Family Centric Cohesion

Online Entertainment

Environmental Awareness

Life Hacks/Professional Hacks

And many more.  This generation will boast not only the most highly educated in history, but will influence the destiny of mankind like no other.  It already can boast changing society ~ rapidly.

The generation that has given us the iPhone and Android will look back years from now as another milestone in its mobile thought transmission process.  At some point, our own bodies will house implants, and we will communicate seamlessly with the Internet.  This has been given to us by millennials.  They will live to enjoy the benefits of technology they are already comfortable with.  Hipsters  will be early adopters of disruptive miracles.  The ability to adapt rapidly to changing technology requires less effort than other generations.

Getting the best bargain, and making the right decision are important.  Making this happen with a few quick clicks? Probably no other site has or will come close as http://flipnerd.com   A disruptive technology FlipNerd.com seeks to become the first FREE Investor site in existence.  Set to launch in the Summer of 2014, FlipNerd will cater to the demographic that is sitting on the sideline waiting to invest in Real Estate.

Traditional wisdom has it that millenials and hipsters are not participating in the same investments as their parents or other demographics and for the most part this is true.  It depends on what side of the millennial group they fall on.  A 35 year old may have had a job before the 2006-2008 Recession.   If so, they will be upwardly mobile, forming families, and will carry the same goals as when single.  They adjust.  Those who fall on the unemployed or underemployed side of the Recession will also migrate to better positions, and will tend to be a great resource for identifying life hacks, bargains and creative avenues of expression.  Causes are important, and using technology to create efficiencies, shop and seamlessly help make decisions are common habits of any millennials.

* NOTES:  We wanted to give you the best wordsmithery here at Social N and therefore very academically arrived at the Urban Dictionary http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=hipster  gives  this rather long winded idealistic description of hipsters ~ the 24-35 age demographic ~  so we included it here as a reference ~ a stark contrast to Google’s “popular” definition, we find Urban to give us a much more non mainstream vibe.

Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20’s and 30’s that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. The greatest concentrations of hipsters can be found living in the Williamsburg, Wicker Park, and Mission District neighborhoods of major cosmopolitan centers such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco respectively. Although “hipsterism” is really a state of mind,it is also often intertwined with distinct fashion sensibilities. Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses. Both hipster men and women sport similar androgynous hair styles that include combinations of messy shag cuts and asymmetric side-swept bangs. Such styles are often associated with the work of creative stylists at urban salons, and are usually too “edgy” for the culturally-sheltered mainstream consumer. The “effortless cool” urban bohemian look of a hipster is exemplified in Urban Outfitters and American Apparel ads which cater towards the hipster demographic. Despite misconceptions based on their aesthetic tastes, hipsters tend to be well educated and often have liberal arts degrees, or degrees in maths and sciences, which also require certain creative analytical thinking abilities. Consequently many hipsters tend to have jobs in the music, art, and fashion industries. It is a myth that most hipsters are unemployed and live off of their parent’s trust funds.
Hipsters shun mainstream societal conventions that apply to dating preferences and traditional “rules” of physical attraction. It is part of the hipster central dogma not to be influenced by mainsream advertising and media, which tends to only promote ethnocentric ideals of beauty. The concepts of androgyny and feminism have influenced hipster culture, where hipster men are often as thin as the women they date. The muscular and athletic all-American male ideal is not seen as attractive by confident and culturally-empowered hipster women who instead view them as symbols of male oppression, sexism, and misogyny. Likewise, culturally-vapid sorority-type girls with fake blond hair, overly tanned skin, and “Britney Spears tube-tops” are not seen as attractive by cultured hipster males who instead see them as symbols of female insecurity, low self-esteem, and lack of cultural intelligence and independent thinking. Hipsters are also very racially open-minded, and the greatest number of interracial couples in any urban environment are typically found within the hipster subculture.
Although hipsters are technically conformists within their own subculture, in comparison to the much larger mainstream mass, they are pioneers and leaders of the latest cultural trends and ideals. For example, the surge of jeans made to look old and worn (i.e. “distressed”), that have become prevalent at stores such as The Gap, American Eagle, Abercrombie and Fitch, and Hollister, were originally paraded by hipsters who shopped in thrift stores years before such clothing items were mass produced and sold to the mainstream consumer. The true irony here is that many of the detractors of hipster culture are in fact unknowingly following a path that hipsters have carved out years before them. This phenomena also applies to music as well, as many bands have become successful and known to mainstream audiences only because hipsters first found and listened to them as early-adopters of new culture. Once certain concepts of fashion and music have reached mainstream audiences, hipsters move on to something new and improved.
Because of the rise of various online photo-blog and social networking sites, insights into urban hipster culture is reaching sheltered suburban audiences at an exponential rate. Cultural “norms” have been deconstructed by hipster culture as a whole. Hipsterism is often dismissed as just an image thing by some, but the culture as a whole is effecting changes in society, leading to feelings of insecurity and resentment in people who are no longer a part of the cultural ruling class. For example, a lot of anti-hipster sentiment evidently comes from culturally-clueless suburban frat boy types who feel that the more sensitive, intelligent, and culturally aware hipster ideal threatens their insecure sense of masculinity. Anti-hipster sentiment often comes from people who simply can’t keep up with social change and are envious of those who can.
