Twitter Link Roundup # 304 – Terrific Reads for Small Business, Entrepreneurs, Marketers, and Designers!

Jasu Hu

Dependence on smartphones has been linked to potentially concerning problems for today’s youth, including deteriorating mental health and a substantial intellectual decline as people age.

A recent essay in The Atlantic on this subject shares some startling statistics, including that “iGen” teens aren’t interested in working and earning their own income. In the late 1970s, 77 percent of high-school seniors worked for pay; now, in the mid-2010s, only 55 percent do.

This decrease in independence, and consequently, happiness, has been strongly linked to smartphone addiction.

We will need to monitor and limit connection time – for kids and adults – if we want future generations to be mentally and physically strong, productive, and independent.

Now, we hope you enjoy another great set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our crowdSPRING Twitter account (and on Ross’s Twitter account).
