We didn’t have all the online options that teens today have.
Now, in addition to Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter, teens have hundreds of sites just for them, and they can chat and get to know all kinds of people within seconds.
Some of the best places online to meet other teens aren't actually labeled as dating sites; instead, they are geared toward socializing and meeting other people with similar interests.
Instagram began as a way to share photos with friends but has quickly evolved into a social media platform that allows users to meet new people.
Search for people in your age range with similar interests using the "Suggested Users" function or by searching for certain hashtags that interest you.
Instagram's usage among teens is steadily increasing, meaning there will be plenty of options to meet people using this tool.
One-quarter (24%) of teen “daters” or roughly 8% of all teens have dated or hooked up with someone they first met online.
