Virality – the seldom achieved dream of all content creators! You slave in front of your computer for hours at a time, producing relevant, witty, and engaging content – or at least, you think so. You polish it all up, hit the publish button, and wait in anticipation.
Most of the time your content falls flat on its behind, but sometimes you’re rewarded for your hard work! The numbers keep going up, your subscribers list is growing, you notice a towering spike on that Google Analytics graph, and you’re over the moon with joy!
I’m here to tell you to hold off with the festivities. This is not the time to be celebrating.

Even though there may be some discrepancy in identifying which ages apply to millennials, there’s one thing that’s true. This generation is now more populous than Baby Boomers!
According to the Pew Research Center:
“Millennials have surpassed Baby Boomers as the nation’s largest living generation, according to population estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau. Millennials, whom we define as those ages 18-34 in 2015, now number 75.4 million, surpassing the 74.9 million Baby Boomers (ages 51-69).”
And, the generation is growing thanks to young immigrants.
“With immigration adding more numbers to its group than any other, the Millennial population is projected to peak in 2036 at 81.1 million.
