Not quite a college or career question, but this seems like an appropriate place to converse :). I like Psychology Today, Google Scholar, The Epoch Times, and Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. I'm having trouble finding social media accounts that post psychology facts that are actually true. Any book recommendations?

Although it is a bit more "pop" psychology, I do find Psychology Today and Scientific American have readable, useful content that can help you spot industry trends.

Research that is in peer-reviewed journals. Unfortunately, that information isn't generally available unless you are a student enrolled in a university OR a faculty member at a university. Downloading of articles is expensive...

Another source is www.sciencedaily.com which provides the latest published research!
