Who Has More Friends, Gen Z or Millennials?

Are you a millennial or a proud member of Gen Z? It can sometimes be hard to distinguish between the two generations—aren't we all just glued to our phones and obsessed with social media these days? According to a survey by Acuvue, there are some key differences in how the two groups ~live life~. Here's how your gen lines up:

Young people actually do communicate face-to-face

As much as we live behind our screens, we do communicate face-to-face, too. Seventy-eight percent of millennials and Gen Z interact with their friends by seeing them in person. That's not to say we're not using social media to our advantage, though; 33 percent of Gen Z-ers say they've used social media to make friends (24 percent of millennials agree). But who's got more? Gen Z, you roll with bigger squads—17 percent of 14 to 17 year olds say they have more than 10 close friends. Just 8 percent of those aged 18 to 35 have that big of a squad.

Smartphones are helping millennials and Gen Z-ers see into bright futures

While many adults perceive millennials and Gen Z as too lazy to get up from in front of the computer screen, those screens may be the gateway to impressive futures for younger generations. In fact, both generations are as motivated as ever to find a lasting career they can be passionate about—this according to 31 percent of respondents. But priorities lie in different camps. Thirty-seven percent of Gen Z-ers say that earning a lot of money is their number one career goal. Meanwhile, 27 percent of millennials say that a good work-life balance is what they find most important. Regardless, it seems that Millennials and Gen Z-ers both feel more driven to go after what they want. 

Both generations are ready to talk politics 

Together, these groups are engaged and outspoken when it comes to politics. Freedom of choice, according to 69 percent of survey takers across both age groups, is very important. And both agree that there's so much more to the world that most of us even know. Eighty percent believe the world has so much to offer—and they are hopeful for the future.
