Millennials  are a  marketers  dream: they are always plugged in. They are also a marketer's nightmare: they have seen it all and have no patience.

Across the globe, people between the ages of 18 and 36 check their phone 43 times a day on average, according to a survey of 1,800 millennials conducted by web analytics company SDL. And while those young, plugged-in consumers are largely connecting with brands on social media, they are not impressed by quantity; they want to see specific, targeted, short and sharable content.
