Teenagers through the decades

I have been watching older films lately and there are a few things I have noticed. Teenagers portrayed in the 1980s tended to be doing something rather uncommon today: making their own fun. Whether it was going to a house party, cruising around your local downtown, hanging out at an arcade, or just talking with friends, teenagers in general seemed much more social than our current “social media” generation.
I was a teenager in the 1990s, and most of the time we hung out at malls or people’s houses and were intrigued by home video game consoles.

Anyways, I created this crude poster just for fun.

What is your opinion, and what do you remember doing when you were a teenager?
