My apologies. The article linked to above was from "The Guardian," in 2013. I had viewed it as a rebuttal against research-based evidence that social media rewires our neuroplastic brains, and accidentally copied and pasted the wrong URL.
Contrary to what that article claims, there IS clinical evidence that internet usage (and specifically, social media like Facebook) changes the way our brains work, and not necessarily for the better. The article linked below was the one I originally intended to share, and contains links to its sources.
Anyway, please forgive the multiple posts. I'm really not trying to belabor the issue... I just wanted my former Facebook contacts to know that I wouldn't be around there anymore :)!
