Essentially the internet gives teenagers an opportunity to productively spend their free time and also provides a platform where they can monetize their hobbies, talents and passion.
An example of an exceptional teenager who has amassed wealth online is Michigan native Ashley Qualls who taught herself HTML and launched a site known as Whatever which she used to showcase her designs to potential buyers. Her site grew gradually and currently has more than 7 million users. This creative and innovative teenage pacesetter is living proof that with determination and the right information a teenager can indeed make money online.
The internet has created a space that allows teenagers to literally be on the same playing field as anyone else.
When working online their age is a non-issue and all they are judged by is the quality, creativity and relevance of their work.
Some popular topics include video games, cooking and sports.
