Positives and Negatives of Social Media

Although this piece in the Economist, and certainly its title, skews toward highlighting the negative effects of social media, it’s interesting to note the reported positive effects on well-being among study participants. Here at PSTT, we’re lovers of great graphics and compelling data, so we thought this was worth sharing.

Speaking of positive impacts of tech, we loved the tip shared by Delaney Rushton, MD in her recent Tech Talk Tuesdays blog post to start family tech conversations with an acknowledgment of something positive tech does in our lives. She writes, “This helps kids remember that we really do appreciate the countless benefits of the tech revolution and that we really do understand why they want to be on screens so much.”
