Technology is ever-growing and changing. Things can be trending one day and completely irrelevant the next. And unless you’re making a conscientious effort to keep up with everything on a day-to-day basis, it can feel like the tech train left the station without you, leaving you to wait for the next train to hop on.

At Plugged In, we’ve always tried to keep our audience up to date. We write articles about specific apps parents should be aware of. We have a Tech Guide that gives some great pointers about how to keep up with technology, talk to your kids about it and even instill some parameters to keep your family safe. But sometimes, you just need to know what’s happening right now in the world of social media and technology to know what you should even be thinking about.
