One new article link has been added to our Related News page. CNN published an article titled Teen ‘like’ and ‘FOMO’ anxiety.

Ask any teen whether he or she suffers from social media anxiety, and the answer will probably be no.

That’s what happened when six teens and adolescents — five from New York and one from Los Angeles — got together recently for a unique weeklong workshop at the offices of SheKnows.com, a leading women’s lifestyle media platform.

The teens didn’t think that Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, their go-to social networks, added much extra anxiety to their lives. But then the conversation turned to the importance of likes and the fear of missing out, also known by the acronym FOMO.

Related News: Parents face defamation trial over fake Facebook page their kid made

One new article link has been added to our Related News page. Ars Technica published an article titled Parents face defamation trial over fake Facebook page their kid made.

Two parents whose teenager set up a fake Facebook page to ridicule a classmate will face a defamation trial, a Georgia appeals court ruled yesterday. Even though they didn’t create the page, the parents could be liable because they allowed it to remain up for more than a year, the court said.

In 2011, Alexandria (Alex) Boston, a middle school student in Cobb County, Georgia, shared a homeroom class with Dustin Athearn and Melissa Snodgrass. Athearn and Snodgrass created a fake Facebook page under Boston’s name. They posted pictures of her taken using a “fat face” app and wrote posts that suggested she had racist views and was a lesbian, according to a report published today in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
