Teen Had Absolutely No Say In Becoming Part Of Snapchat Generation

PEEKSKILL, NY—Lamenting that she is now inextricably associated with the popular image messaging app solely because of the date of her birth, local teen Caitlin Reese told reporters Thursday that she had no say whatsoever in becoming part of the Snapchat Generation. “Being labeled a member of the Snapchat Generation was by no means my idea, but at this point, there’s really nothing I can do but go along with it,” said the 17-year-old high school student, resigning herself to the reality that she’ll be lumped together with a heterogeneous group of millions of individuals born in the late 1990s and early 2000s whenever a marketing professional, member of the media, or exasperated older citizen refers to the Snapchat Generation to make a sweeping point about people in her age bracket. “At no point did anyone ever inquire about my personal feelings regarding Snapchat, or Snaps, or chatting, or anything like that—it was just decided, and now there’s no way to get out of it. I just have to accept that whenever someone says the phrase ‘Snapchat Generation,’ that includes me. That’s just the hand I was dealt.” Reese expressed a measure of satisfaction, however, that she had at least been born late enough to escape the fate of her 28-year-old brother, who, through no act of his own, had been forever branded a member of the MySpace Generation.
