REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - January 20, 2010) - Teens in Tech Networks, the company dedicated to helping the youth publish their content online, today announced that it has acquired Yazzem. Zachary Collins and Dustin Snider founded Yazzem in June 2009, both 14 years of age, to simplify a way to create and discuss topics in Twitter and FriendFeed.

In the acquisition, Yazzem becomes a product of Teens in Tech Networks, and development will continue on Yazzem. Yazzem's employees, including its co-founders, join Teens in Tech Networks.
