(Best Syndication News) - Having bundles of friends on Facebook may sound cool, but a new report suggests that the more social the person is online the more stressful social media becomes. The report from the University of Edinburgh Business School found that adding employers, parents, and more groups of people into their Facebook friends circle, the more likely a person will be stressed from the activity.

The stress factor comes out when the user is sharing their life on Facebook that might not be acceptable to some of their online social circles. Usually this behavior involved swearing, being reckless, drinking, or smoking.

(Best Syndication News) - Today is Mother’s Day and according to the US Census Bureau, there are over 85 million moms in the United States. In recent years, the average age for becoming a first time mother is 25 years old said the US Census Bureau.

Mother’s Day became a national event when Congress approved it in 1914. The idea started with Anna Jarvis from West Virginia back in 1908, who wanted to have a special day to honor mothers.

Anna Jarvis had campaigned for Mother’s Day to become a US holiday two years after her mother had died. In 1920, Jarvis complained that Mother’s Day had become commercialized. Jarvis had set up the Mother’s Day International Association and had tried to trademark “second Sunday in May” and “Mother’s Day.” She spent the rest of her life trying to change the holiday away from the commercial money making venture of the greeting card and flower companies which it had become. She felt that people buying premade greeting card were terrible. Instead she thought one should write their own words to thank their mother for all that she has done.
