How have things changed since you were in high school?

Then: Teens read their own magazines like Seventeen, Teen, and YM. They also had their own websites like Kiwibox and Bolt
Today: Teens shun traditional magazines and teen-oriented media for social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat
Then: Teen girls loved to wear long glamorous gowns to prom and homecoming dances
Today: Teens either make their own dresses or wear club clothes to prom
Then: Teenagers watched cool dramas like My So-Called Life and Dawson's Creek. Most every girl wanted to be like Angela Chase or Joey Potter.
Today: Teens want to star on television. Girls can get pregnant in hopes of becoming the next Farrah Abraham or Jenelle Evans
Then: Teens would send weekend and summer vacations at the mall. You could find them at Sam Goody's buying the latest CDs or at Claire's getting their ears pierced.
Today: No mall for today's teen even though 90 percent of mall stores cater exclusively to their demographic. Today's teens shop online using YouTube fashion bloggers and celebrities as style icons.
