While your world shifts in previously unimaginable ways when you become a parent, one fundamental thing does not: You need a village to help you along. As a result, many new moms are seeking sanctuary and support in blogs and Facebook, according to a couple of recent studies.
Deb McGarry had just delivered the eulogy at her grandmother’s funeral when pain shot through her chest. A wave of nausea followed.
“Something is wrong,” McGarry whispered to her husband as an arm went numb and the lump in her throat turned to panic.
Parents of students in Grand Forks public schools will receive some education of their own in the next few weeks. The subject: Internet safety and how they can better monitor their children’s use of social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
A flight attendant was the subject of a Twitter tirade from Alec Baldwin after the actor was booted from a plane at Los Angeles International Airport for playing a word game on his cell phone as the plane was about to depart for New York.
The popular social network has long been a good place for serendipitous encounters that lead to friendships online and off. Now some are formalizing this trend by creating scheduled events called "Twitter chats," where users gather to socialize or for professional networking.
During a May floor debate, Sen. Gretchen Hoffman, a Vergas Republican, tweeted that Democratic Sen. Barb Goodwin called people with mental illnesses "idiots and imbeciles" when Goodwin actually used the words to illustrate discredited terms of a bygone era.
Republican Tim Pawlenty disclosed his 2012 presidential aspirations on Facebook. Rival Mitt Romney did it with a tweet. President Barack Obama kicked off his re-election bid with a digital video emailed to the 13 million online backers who helped power his historic campaign in 2008.

Sometimes, UND professor Paul Sum would find an article that he thought would be of interest to his political science students, and he’d email them so they could talk about it when the class met again.
That’s the idea anyway.
Pawlenty: Crosshairs use 'not a device I would have chosen' Some political pros say former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's tactics, which protect her from mainstream reporters and neutral audiences, are savvy and effective. Others say she will have to change if she becomes a presidential candidate and hopes to win the crucial Iowa caucus or New Hampshire primary, let alone the 2012 general election. Many agree she's a master at exploiting the campaign possibilities of fast-changing social media.
MySpace, the online social hub that's been fighting to stay relevant in the age of Facebook and Twitter, is overhauling its image and its website into an entertainment destination for its mostly younger audience.
The latest Facebook privacy fiasco shows that the world's largest online social hub is having a hard time putting this thorny issue behind it even as it continues to attract users and become indispensible to many of them.
