    But there’s some real issue going on with the Gen Z, we’re facing mental illness more than before, sources for everything is so freely available that competition has risen more than ever and comparison gosh! Children of the genZ are committing suicide!!!through internet world seems so big yet small to us, infact there’s so much drastic change in past 20 years that our brain hasn’t adapted to understand or grasp this concept of Connectivity. We feel social media is real when actually it’s fake. Our attention span is deteriorating because of it we tend to loose focus easily and due to pandemic we’re addicted to phones that we have created another world inside it and whereas 20 years ago it was completely different.

    Where everything is easily available
    Taking action is getting hard
    Information overload

    "What makes Gen Z different?"

    As part of Gen Z, i think that one of the big differences is that when we voice our ideas to people who are older, they never listen.

    oh and we bully people with fairy comments.🧚🏻‍♀️✨



  6. RJ on September 24, 2021 at 12:43 am

    Not me rewatching this cause I need to write a essay on social media and Gen z is literally the social media



  7. Rahul T on September 24, 2021 at 12:43 am

    ‘What makes gen z different ?’

    DEPRESSION!!



  8. Hkuka71 on September 24, 2021 at 12:43 am

    Validation generation. Its all about how many views while pretending to be a BLM protester or caring about Afghanistan



  9. Im Clueless on September 24, 2021 at 12:45 am

    gen z 100% has it easier than every generation has had.



  10. Divaku Joshi on September 24, 2021 at 12:46 am

    genz is the most offended generation!



  11. Victoria Lara on September 24, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Harry Beard: What makes Gen Z so different?

    Gen Z: Why are you named after a beard?

  16. Thanh Thảo on September 24, 2021 at 12:49 am

    His instagram ??



  17. Tushar Katangale on September 24, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Gen Z..also called as Zoomers are the most vulnerable across all the mental, emotional and physical



  18. Syed Waziullah on September 24, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Im a Gen Z



  19. H. Watanabe Sousa on September 24, 2021 at 12:57 am

    Honestly, I don’t even know what to expect from Alpha generation kids. My niece is so freakin clever, I can’t.



  20. Michele Wilke on September 24, 2021 at 12:58 am

    "they do it all"… Quality takes a back seat to quantity. Maybe these out of the boxers (who are deeply conformist within their groups who share cell phone addiction) might also stop judging and cancelling the world they don’t agree with. On the other hand this young man also has a point. Super savvy? Perhaps yes, in an extremely narrow way. And… There is potential there too. If Gen Z can address their fragile natures and judgemental views, I think they can also help make the world a better place.



  21. Alen Sujith. on September 24, 2021 at 12:58 am

    Me who got a public exam in like 4 days, listening to why gen z is different be like:



  22. Steve on September 24, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Dude, generation Z still has their EGO to contend with. The EGO is not your friend and it finds enemies everywhere.



  23. can i have your autograph? on September 24, 2021 at 1:01 am

    bruh, one thing I can tell for sure is being gen z is not fun anymore.



  24. Gregory Kovtun on September 24, 2021 at 1:02 am

    if you born in mind 90s you are not gen z!



  25. Nicole Ng on September 24, 2021 at 1:03 am

  26. Dangmei Dangmei on September 24, 2021 at 1:05 am

  28. Sulthan Kamil on September 24, 2021 at 1:10 am

  29. Usha Sharma on September 24, 2021 at 1:11 am

  30. Bang Bangtan on September 24, 2021 at 1:12 am

  32. Bhavani Reddy on September 24, 2021 at 1:15 am

    What makes Gen Z different?

    GenZ :we watched a video called "Timelapse of universe to the end of the time". In Quarantine



  33. Michael Gagaoudakis on September 24, 2021 at 1:15 am

    🤣🤣🤣 this kid thinks he has it all figured out. Man he’s going to have a rude awakening.



  34. Tak Lê on September 24, 2021 at 1:15 am

  36. Игорь Чурбаков on September 24, 2021 at 1:17 am

    Juste une petit con qui se la péte !!!!



  37. B. T. on September 24, 2021 at 1:19 am

    "What makes Z gen different?"
    -SJW and Cancel culture, the online projection of impulsivity and inner pulsions. Massif practice of online dénonciation of people that become easly cyberbullism.



  38. Vaidika Jaiswal on September 24, 2021 at 1:20 am

    I’m also a genz but born in 1997.. I don’t feel like genz 😅 feels like I’m a boomer 🤣



  39. shes _ stela on September 24, 2021 at 1:22 am

    I clicked on the video and read ‘What makes Gen Z so different?’ and then an ad came and the first thing it says is: MONEY



  40. dlwlrma 07 on September 24, 2021 at 1:22 am

    we are different because we use dark humor as a coping mechanism



  41. Mani kandan on September 24, 2021 at 1:23 am

    Thanks you, really great truths told.
    We need to change the education system and business sector to be more happy and efficient.
    1. Learn and do what you love and enjoy ( Make sure it’s valuable to people ).
    2. When you are happy, you will make others happy.
    3. Think bigger, but be realistic.



  42. H. Watanabe Sousa on September 24, 2021 at 1:24 am

    Gen Z is that kid everyone expects so muuch from them bc they were smart when kids, but they grow up to be rebelled on the expectations



  43. Rick Rohl on September 24, 2021 at 1:27 am

    The Personal Brand Generation? Next.



  44. Chayanit Sriwilai on September 24, 2021 at 1:28 am

    I like his accent



  45. Kim TATAツ on September 24, 2021 at 1:28 am

    Gen Z is the epitome of ‘Live and let live’



  46. Kshitija Desai on September 24, 2021 at 1:29 am

    memes, memes, memes.



  47. Erik Gonzalez on September 24, 2021 at 1:29 am

    Someone somewhere once said they’recalled generation Z because they’ll be the last generation..



  48. Lyba on September 24, 2021 at 1:29 am

    I am amazed by the fact that he thinks that millennials can’t exploit the benefits of the genZ. We have seen the most diverse span of time. We have seen things evolve step by step. We have seen the manual > semi-automatic> fully automatic era and we are wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more handy than genZ can think of. The only difference I see is that genZ is the most delusional generation. They create a sense of achievement and gratify for unsustainable success. Otherwise everyone can do what genZ can do.



  49. Michael Gagaoudakis on September 24, 2021 at 1:30 am

    This is an overly egotistic kid with little to no real world experience. You think you are programmed to be marketing experts but you have no clue how to fulfill orders.

    Sad, his parents should be embarrassed they raised someone without responsibility.



  50. The Neon Cicada on September 24, 2021 at 1:33 am

    What makes "Generation Z" so different?
    An alarming rate of mental illness, internet addictions & narcissism disorders.
