16 Random Things You Should Probably Know About Today's Teens

Sexting happens, but "full-on nudes are rare."

We recently asked teenagers from the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about the current trends, who and what's popular, and what it's like to be a teen growing up in a tech-savvy world. Here is what we learned:

1. Passing notes is now a lost art.

2. Technology is a distraction, until it isn't.

3. If there's a fad happening, teenagers are not aware of it.

4. Hippie attire is (seemingly) making a comeback.

5. Text lingo is SO not cool, guys.

6. MTV is dying.

7. Netflix is king.

8. Kim Kardashian is queen.

9. Everybody hates Justin Bieber.

10. Britney Spears is old and so are you.

11. Music is widespread.

12. Instagram has completely replaced Facebook...sort of.

13. Vaping is probably not as popular as you think.

14. Selfies have replaced sexting.

15. They don't remember anything about Sept. 11, 2001.

16. They're just like us.
