Status Update is the new Status Symbol

Kids today seem to be more interested in experience than ownership and having to share that experience to prove they’ve done it.

Take Instagram for example, what a perfect way to update their experiences with others. It’s proof “I’ve been there” or “I’ve done that”. And that Instagram went from 8 employees in 2010 to being bought by Facebook for US$1 Billion just 2 years later (with no advertising revenue), is proof kids are worried about #FOMO.
