What does YM mean?

YM
YM was an American teen magazine that began in 1932. It was published for 72 years and was the second oldest girls' magazine in the United States. YM got its start as two magazines in the 1930s—Compact, which was aimed at older teens, and Calling All Girls, which was intended for younger girls and pioneered the signature embarrassing-moments column, "Say Anything". By the late 1960s, the publications merged into Young Miss, a small digest-sized mag. In the 1960s the size was increased and the 1980s saw still another title change under Bonnie Fuller's direction as editor-in-chief. The final title change came in 2000, though the abbreviation "YM" was the title by which it was commonly referred. In early 2002, then Editor-in-Chief Christina Kelly announced that the magazine would no longer run articles about dieting. YM ceased publication in 2004, with the December–January issue. Subscribers received Teen Vogue subscriptions in replacement. YM is no longer published online and now the domain is only a link to Teen Vogue. The publisher was Gruner + Jahr before the assets of YM were purchased by Conde Nast Publications. This purchase included YM's subscription file, title and brand name, rights to special publication titles, domain name, and newsstand pockets.
