    2. Facebook's new feature lets parents give kids an official presence
    As a way of regulating underage users, Facebook is rolling out a new photo-organizing feature called Scrapbook, which will give kids under 13 an official presence on the social media site, even without having a proper profile. Scrapbook lets parents collect photos of their baby, toddler, or pre-teen in one place, which they can share with their friends or loved ones. It will first be available in the U.S. on desktop, iOS and Android versions. Facebook is also looking into eventually being able to hand these scrapbooks over to the child when he or she turns 13.

    5. New role for milk-producing hormone
    New research shows that prolactin, the hormone that stimulates milk production in nursing mothers, also fosters bond between couples. The new study, which was published in the online journal PLoS One, found that prolactin levels were high among couples that frequently had sex or cuddled; mothers who stopped nursing had low prolactin levels and less sex and cuddling. Prolactin was previously linked to pleasurable emotions. It is also high in fathers who cared for their baby more often. (sciencedaily.com)
