Thanks to the Internet, teenagers have it soooo easy seeking answers to life’s hardest questions—but it wasn’t always like that!
Back when I was a youngster, the only sources of information about teen things, like shoplifting and how to smuggle alcohol into the movies, was to ask my friends or watch Friends. Now, teens have Yahoo! Answers and the incognito browser option to discover life’s more embarrassing questions without anyone ever knowing.
Maybe we’re always this weird, but the stuff you find on Yahoo! Answers reveals the deeply troubling world teenagers deal with every day.
So in honor of Yahoo!’s 18th birthday (at least that’s what Answers says), we’re honoring the 12 most important teen issues to appear on the Internet’s glossary for the smartset.
