Fortunately, Teen Vogue has already begun moving toward a digital platform. Teen Vogue’s digital traffic has grown from 2 million to 12 million unique users, according to editor-in-chief Elaine Welteroth’s statement at the Adweek’s Elevate summit.

Recently, the publication has been active in speaking out against the Trump Administration as well as discussing diversity issues.

Despite losing its print publication, Teen Vogue will continue to engage their readers through its digital platform and, even personal interactions. Teen Vogue will expand their digital operations and host a summit on Dec. 1, 2017, that will include keynote speakers, workshops and panels.

Teen Vogue isn’t the only publication Condé Nast decided to cut back on. The New York based publisher underwent a major year of reorganization including budget cuts and layoffs. Condé Nast is evolving with the world of digital journalism by lowering costs devoted to print. GQ, Glamour, Allure and Architectural Digest will reduce their number of print publications from 12 to 11.

Additionally, some Condé Nast editors have announced their resignation inclduing Editors-in-chiefs, Graydon Carter of Vanity Fair, Keija Minor of Brides, and Cindi Leive of Glamour. Their replacements will be announced in the coming weeks, according to The New York Times.
