sharing private life without knowing the boundaries of the private and public domains.

Indications that the function of social media has now shifted from being a substitute for direct interaction to a stage of self-expression. Social media provides a feature for us to share thoughts, opinions, and experiences that sometimes or unintentionally enter into our own private sphere and seem to vent.

Admire, praise and recognition of the social status of many people can meet human needs for pride. Someone will feel proud of himself when he feels that he has done something "significant" on one (or more) social media platforms that he uses. Social recognition from people on social media is ultimately able to provide a feeling of happiness for someone who uses it. Social recognition can be obtained when someone tells about his personal life (confide) which then get a positive response from many people on social media.

The impact of the many mobile devices with various types, brands, features and applications that are in it has made millennials closer to these devices. They have made mobile devices a part of the family that will never scold them. They can do all their college work, study online, office work and other work with their mobile devices from home, without having to leave the house.

Millennials will sometimes also be very difficult to be invited to communicate even tend to not connect with what we ask. They are very focused on their gadgets to search for various information available on mobile devices applications.

Unlike when they ask directly with the teacher or the tutor, the answers given usually come from one source so there is no other comparison. So asking Google is sometimes more beneficial than asking a teacher who teaches lessons.

But this is certainly specific to the realm of knowledge. While for the realm of attitude and skills must still be asked and tested directly by the teacher who mastered the subject. But with the Google web browser, their teacher has increased by one. And this teacher who is named Google will never be angry and disappointed with these millennials.

7. The best reference learning resource is an ebook
