Finally, a CSS only solution to :hover on touchscreens
There have been problems with the :hover pseudo-class ever since the first web browser was installed on a touchscreen device. Of course there were solutions, but none of those were the solution. With…

The Life of the Skin-Hungry: Can You Go Crazy from a Lack Of Touch? - Broadly
One study found that lonely people aged 50 and over were twice as likely to die as their non-lonely peers. In comments reported in USA Today, psychologist Janice Kiecolt-Glaser argues that the elderly need prolonged physical contact more than younger generations: "The older you are, the more fragile you are physically, so contact becomes increasingly important for good health."

a quarter of Americans feel they have no one they can talk to about their problems. One study from British relationship charity Relate finds almost ten percent of people have no close friendships at all, and 20 percent of those in relationships rarely feel "loved."

It's possible to be touch hungry and not even know it—or even to mistake your symptoms for poor mental health. "People who are touch hungry usually present as being depressed individuals,"

the act of hugging can reduce your levels of the stress hormone cortisol. A study from the Touch Research Institute, part of the University of Miami, found that Parisian teenagers hanging out in McDonald's restaurants (France is deemed a "high contact" culture) overwhelmingly touched each other more than their American peers, and were less likely to exhibit symptoms of aggression.

The only way to detect touch with JavaScript
If you ask stack overflow “how to detect touch with JavaScript” you’ll get a lot of answers that all have one thing in common: they have nothing to do with humans.

In my not-even-close-to-humble opinion, all of these answers are wrong, but it’s not the fault of the answerers. It’s the fault of the askerers. Why on earth would you want to know if your user is looking at a device that responds to the touch?

We want to detect human touch, not device touch. I reckon that’s important enough to be repeated in a big font.

Design for Fingers, Touch, and People, parts 1 to 3
People have now read and referred to my 2013 column How Do Users Really Hold Mobile Devices? almost too much for my comfort. Why? Because, since I wrote that column, I have continued to do research, put my findings into practice for real products, written additional articles, and presented on that topic. In the years since then, I’ve learned a lot more about how people hold and touch their phones and tablets—a lot of which I did’t expect. And that’s the problem with my old columns. I made some assumptions that were based on observations of the usage of desktop PCs, standards for older types of interactions, and anecdotes or misrepresented data. However, through my later research and better analysis, I’ve been able to discard all of those erroneous assumptions and reveal the truth.
