What is the connection between social media use and sleep? Researchers don't have it pinned down exactly, but there's definitely some sort of relationship going on -- especially since it's becoming more and more common to have a phone plugged in right by a bed. Check out this article for a great overview of what we know from the studies so far: http://ow.ly/OQJmX

The balancing act for mental health professionals is distinguishing "wanna-be" depressed kids from kids who are actually depressed -- and many dispute that there is even a difference between the two. http://ow.ly/Of8rp

Video game lovers will have another platform for news, updates, and all video-game related content: the YouTube gaming app is set to debut later this summer. http://ow.ly/OQJ49

Kudos to Wayman Gresham, Florida dad and educator who made a video to encourage parents NOT to shame their kids through social media.
