Teenagers And Technology—Can We Talk?

My name is Anastasia Goodstein, but you can call me stasiaful, sfstasia or ypulsestasia all different user IDs I've used to create profiles on various Web sites or applications. You can check out my MySpace profile here:  http://www.myspace.com/ypulse and my book information here: http://www.myspace.com/totallywiredbook. I'm a professional blogger who has managed to turn what started as a side project I used to do before work into a full-time gig about teenagers and technology. My blog is called Ypulse (www.ypulse.com ), and I attempt to track what's going on in the daily world of teenagers and technology for media and marketing folks who want to better understand YOU. They may be editing teen magazines they hope you'll read, or creating TV they hope you'll watch or have a product they hope you'll like enough to buy or talk about. Many of my readers also work for non-profit organizations, libraries, and churches. They all just want to know what makes you tick.

 

In 2007, St. Martin's Press published my first book called, Totally Wired: What Teens And Tweens Are Really Doing Online. I wrote this book for your parents. It was meant to be a voice of reason in the midst of all of the negative media coverage of what was happening with teenagers and technology. I wanted to tell them, It's okay. Don't panic. You guys are doing what teens have always done, you're just doing it all digitallyhanging out, expressing yourselves, staying connected to your friends. I cover everything from blogging, social networking, IMing and cell phones to cyberbullying and technology at school. I also talk about teenagers and technology and how you're creating your own media, music, videos and podcasts, and how you're using the Web to organize around issues you care about.

 

I work with teenagers and technology because my own teen years were intense, painful, turbulent, amazing and every other emotion I can think of. I somehow survived them with the help of adults who made me feel validated and respected instead of mistrusted, feared, yelled at, or talked down to. I have always been drawn to working with teenagers and technology for this reason. Hopefully I can be one of those adults who will listen and respond to you like the young adults you are becoming.
