How To Lose Money With 24% Of Millennials No Longer Give Technological Products
Millennials are not newsless 24% of them avoid buying these products from their elders because they will have to take care of the installation, according to a study The technological generation gap begins to have consequences within the family and gets to fill the youngest, who would prefer that their relatives they resorted to the help of experts instead of asking them to configure their equipment and solve their problems. In fact, 24% do not buy these types of products to save themselves the problem. At least, this is confirmed by a survey conducted by Arlington Research for Kaspersky to 11,000 consumers in 13 countries (including Spain).
The study also reveals that four out of ten people over 55 have “difficulties in addressing daily technological challenges without outside help.” And this is usually provided by young people (between 25 and 34 years old, generally) from their family. Specifically, 74% of millennials have helped their elders with technological issues.
Although it might seem that this is done in a selfless way, they have already begun to give somewhat more extreme cases, such as the refusal to give technology that we indicated before or the fact that 9% of those over 55 years of age have resorted to bribery economic to get help (which, in this case, goes from being altruistic to something more similar to technical service).

And those who give it do not always do it out of love, but also out of fear: 43% admit to feeling worried about the possibility of their parents “being scammed online.”
Another factor that affects this burning is that the availability is practically constant: 43% of the elderly admit to calling their children or other relatives to request their help remotely. The dreaded and familiar “Google doesn‘t work for me”.
The good news? Although it is a somewhat sacrificed and generally unpaid job, there is a consideration that many may prefer, in this case, to money: 42% of those who received help admit that, in return, they invited to eat or cooked something special to their Familiar as thanks.
