THE BRONX - A study found that despite worries about their future, Facebook, Instagram and everything that comes with it, young people are now happy and healthier.

The study, which looked at kids 11 to 15 years old over a 16-year period, revealed that they are eating more fruits and vegetables and are more active.

Despite the improvements, the study found an increase in schoolwork and no reductions in bullying.
