#ThisGeneration is a photoshop meme based on a series of images created by Ajit Johnson Nirmal that illustrate the current generation's dependence on technology. The series is a parody of the common forum board criticism le wrong generation, instead depicting the current generation as being too dependent on technology.
The first images were created by London-based artist Ajit Johnson, and featured on the website Distractify on March 31st, 2015, and on Johnson's tumblr, receiving over 140,000 notes in a week.
On April 6th, 2015, Imgur user MERYLimPeril uploaded a variant of the image featuring different inflammatory keywords arranged in a word cloud, and changing the bottom line to read "#YOURGeneration". In two days, the image received -8 points.
During the following days, more parodies of the series spread on Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram under the hashtag #ThisGeneration.
Johnson's campaign has been seen as a generational criticism. On April 7th, tumblr user inshepardwetrust uploaded a new version of the parody, reversing the anti-technology claim (shown below). The image garnered over 22,000 notes in one day.
