San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 17, 2004
Launched in May 2004, Ypulse is an independent blog for teen/youth media and marketing professionals providing daily news, commentary and resources on: commercial teen media (teen magazines and websites), entertainment for teens (movies, games, television, music), technology used by teens (cell phones, pagers, instant messaging), the news media's desire to attract teens (newspapers, cable news), marketing and advertising (targeting the teen market, coolhunting) and civic youth media (highlighting organizationsÂ efforts at promoting youth voices in media).
"Ypulse is really a crossroads where commercial teen media makers and marketers intersect with (and hopefully interact with) civic youth culture (non-profits, schools and teens creating their own media)," says founder Anastasia Goodstein. "I've worked in both sectors and I don't think they have to be adversarial or mutually exclusive. I believe they can learn from each other."
