I was going to write a scathing rant about this article that warns us that Facebook harms children’s brains, based solely on the “concerns” of a neuroscientist, whose only evidence seems to be a conversation with one teacher, but Stephen Abrams beat me to it.

For an alternate take on the issue of internet effects, see my earlier summary of an actual study that show benefits of internet use.
