"There’s only one thing that is constant: CHANGE." We have been hearing this all the time but the pace with which the fads of youth change increasing rapidly. 1 min

 Every trend might last for a week or a month and that’s until something new comes up which is more attractive and then that becomes their new trend. But even in this changing world, there is one more trend which is evergreen i.e. “to know to be known”. So, here are few current fads to let you know.

  1. 1 Instagram & Snapchat

    Millennials today have lost interest in reading long messages and stories. They want to know the stories without spending more time on reading rather wants to know the story just in a glance. And so these days Instagram and Snapchat have taken place of Facebook and WhatsApp. It’s their new place to socialize, they spend more time here by adding stories, sharing snaps and uploading videos i.e. sharing their content in a more interesting way that attracts people.

  2. 2 Memes

    A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols, or practices that can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena with a mimicked theme. And these themes are based on the latest trends or news. Currently, the themes are mostly Sanju movie, the song “Tera ghata”, friends, chai pilo and so on.

  3. 3 Life hacks

    Lifehack (or life-hacking) refers to any trick, shortcut, skill, or novelty method that increases productivity and efficiency, in all walks of life. These basically are the ideas of jugaad for your problems in life. And as it solves problems, everyone is attracted towards them.

  4. 4 Pubg

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is an online multiplayer battle royale game. The game is based on previous mods that were created by Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene for other games using the film Battle Royale for inspiration and expanded into a standalone game under Greene's creative direction. In the game, up to one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves. The last player or team standing wins the round. Pubg craze is now on everyone’s mind.

  6. 6 Ask me a question

    As the millennials have drifted towards Instagram and Snapchat which are known for their stories and stickers, any new sticker or feature added on them creates a huge buzz among the youth and one such buzz is the “ask me a question” feature used in Instagram stories where friends can type a question which is answer by the person to whom the story belongs and that becomes another story. This is creating a huge buzz among the youth currently.
