teens it is!

The tech blogosphere is talking about teens and Guy rolling in with an article with Goldstein

  1. Question: Why do teenagers blog?

    Answer:
    Some teens still keep written diaries with their deepest thoughts
    scrawled in them hidden away in their bedrooms, but this generation is
    more comfortable putting that stuff out there for their friends—and
    often the general public—to read.

    Most teens blog
    as yet another way to communicate with their friends. They are more
    about the commenting back and forth and keeping the conversation going
    than writing lengthy blog posts. That said, there are lots of teens who
    post poetry and photographs and who actively journal on their blogs as
    well as teens who blog about specific topics like tech or music. Check
    out this teen-run blog network: Random Shapes.

  2. Question: What is healthy sexual behavior for a teenager?

    Answer:
    That’s a tricky question. I believe in teaching teens about human
    sexuality with a more holistic and developmental approach vs. focusing
    on just whether or not to have it and what kinds of diseases you can
    catch if you do.

    A really positive and accurate site for teens about sex is Sex, etc.
    Teens meeting strangers online to “hook up” is rare—it does happen, but
    I would venture to say it’s a teen who is already engaging in other
    kinds of high-risk behaviors. Is “cybering” healthy sexual activity?
    I’m not a psychologist, but it’s definitely safe sex!

  3. Question: What big brands truly “get” teenagers?

    Answer:
    I’m not saying this just because you worked with Apple, but ever since
    the iPod launched, teens love Apple as much as any Mac fanatic. And
    it’s not that Apple is marketing to them specifically, they just have
    created great products and design that teens are crazy about. While MTV
    has ceded some of its trendsetting dominance to the internet, you can’t
    underestimate their understanding of teens and how to reach them. Other
    brands teens love: Nike, Toyota Scion, Xbox, Sony PS2/PSP, and Nintendo.
