Julia Turner of Slate joins Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti to take a look at how the news is reverberating on social media, including a story about a mother who was caught on video hitting her son, after she says she saw him wearing a face mask and throwing a rock during riots in Baltimore.

We also look at Time magazine's new cover, comparing the riots in Baltimore this week to 1968 riots there, after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Also, Turner tells us about a new tool that guesses your age based on a photo, that is catching attention online.
