Welcome to Small Humans, an ongoing series at Mashable that looks at how to take care of – and deal with – the kids in your life. Because Dr. Spock is nice and all, but it’s 2018 and we have the entire internet to contend with. You're at a barbecue, or maybe a birthday party in the park. Someone, let's say a friend of yours, takes out a phone and snaps a pic of your kids all playing together. The picture is adorable, and it's posted to Facebook before you even realize what happened.  This doesn't bother you, of course. You, and hundreds of millions like you, have already uploaded scores of photos of your children to the online platform — all the way from the delivery room to the moment they uttered their first word. As social media continues to work its way progressively deeper into our everyday lives, this near constant-documentation of our kids has become normalized.  Read more...More about Facebook, Privacy, Mark Zuckerberg, Social Media, and Small...

A 16-year-old South Sudanese girl was sold for marriage via Facebook in a disturbing case that's been described as "reminiscent of latter-day slave markets." The winning bid in the auction was for 500 cows, three cars and $10,000, and the girl was married off at a ceremony on Nov. 3 in the country’s Eastern Lakes State, according to Plan International, a humanitarian organisation focused on children's rights. SEE ALSO: Facebook's board says Zuckerberg was too slow to spot Russian interference "This barbaric use of technology is reminiscent of latter-day slave markets. That a girl could be sold for marriage on the world’s biggest social networking site in this day and age is beyond belief,"  country director of Plan International South Sudan, George Otim, said in a statement.  Read more...More about Tech, Facebook, Slavery, Social Media Companies, and Tech

Trump's "Operation Faithful Patriot" was a $200,000,000 exercise in which 6,000 US troops were deployed within the USA, to the US/Mexico border, nominally to repel the migrant caravan of desperate, poor, terrified asylum seekers. At the time, many accused Trump of staging an election stunt to terrorize his base, part of the lies about Middle Eastern terrorists and MS13 gang-members amongst the refugee caravan. Trump supporters insisted that the president was merely fulfilling his duty to ensure the safety of America and Americans. However, Trump has now announced that the troops will be home by Christmas, right around the time the caravan is expected to arrive. The American people are $200 million poorer for it -- that's money we can ill afford, given the record-beating deficit the Trump administration is set to run, thanks to all the corporate welfare and one percenter tax-breaks he's handed out. In other words, the president spent millions in taxpayer dollars on a stunt that...
