Big data created a monumental shift in the world of advertising, and social media management and micro-targeted advertising became the new standards of how products and services were marketed to individuals instead of generational or demographic targeting of the past.

And as the mobile world took over, media consumption changed with it. Binge-watching became the new standard for how programs were consumed. Netflix, Amazon, and other web streaming services eliminated the need for cable television, and the largest percentage of media consumers under 30 cut the cord or were born in a post-cable environment.

Those are the first big generational shifts which come to mind, but I'm sure there are others.
There are: load-in pants.

Hopefully Skrillex, dub step, Heavy Metal, vaporwave and nightcore will all be forgotten and we look fondly back at the era of people uploading whole albums of strange and obscure music on YouTube.

I think The Batlord might want a few words with you on this.

Unfortunately, probably the rise of ISIS and its spread into Europe.

Fantastic examples.

I'm still waiting for the majority of culture to come to understand the madness of late capitalism, planned obsolescence, and the engineering of consent with regard to consumer culture (both its history and its social and environmental cost). I'm hopeful that the movement rejecting blind-consumer culture will gain enough momentum to begin to curb the perpetual societal dissatisfaction and horrific global impact we experience today.

By 2015, Android commanded over 50% of the mobile market, surpassing Apple's previous market dominance, offering greater variety, compatibility, affordability, and a larger selection of apps. Apple retains a dedicated audience via its core strengths - a simple and easy-to-use uniform interface across all its devices, a sleek, minimalist design, and, for better or worse, the most effective marketing of any company in the modern age. Still, I'm hopeful that increasingly educated consumers will continue to opt for the greater freedom found outside of Apple's gated community.

Similarly, there has been tremendous growth in the culture of open source technologies certainly deserving of mention. The 2010s saw the rise of an important subculture of both creators and consumers embracing the collective sharing of their content for the betterment of culture as a whole.

Copyright licensing is still embarrassingly archaic in 2015, stubbornly clinging to an irrelevant 20th century business model long-since abandoned by the planet's consumers. In the 2010s, piracy grew from an underground shadowy counterculture to the standard means of media consumption by an entire generation. In the last 5 years there have been intriguing developments in streaming services for both audio and video, but until the Big 6 relinquish their stranglehold on 90% of the world's media, licensing will be a monstrous entanglement of red tape impeding the potential of streaming services. (The Beatles joined the ranks of the streaming market just two days ago.) Still, despite these problems, streaming has offered a level of convenience and accessibility sufficient enough to begin to reduce the practice of piracy in modern culture.

I didn't say anything was wrong with them, I just said they're a style that the 10s will be remembered for.
