Despite dire predictions, levels of social support remain steady in the U.S.

Penn State Institute for CyberScience

Although Americans have faced waves of social, technological and economic disruption over the last few decades, a new study indicates that their perceptions of available social support have remained steady and, in some cases, may even be strengthening. In a study that examined data that spans nearly two decades, survey respondents reported that their access to help from friends and family — a key measure of social support — has increased slightly over time.

Many choices seems promising until you actually have to choose

University at Buffalo

People faced with more options than they can effectively consider want to make a good decision, but feel they’re unable to do so, according to the results of a novel study from the University at Buffalo.
