Fresh research has confirmed what many parents and teachers already feared: social networking sites are damaging students’ academic performance.
The researchers discovered that the majority of students who use Face book every day
are underachieving by as much as an entire grade compared with those who shun the
site. In order to reach their conclusion, researchers discovered how students who spend their time accumulating friends, chatting and "poking" others on the site may devote as little as one hour a week to their academic work.In the study, Karpinski and a colleague questioned 219 US undergraduates and graduates about their study practices and general internet use, as well as their specific use of Facebook.
They found that 65 percent of Facebook users accessed their account daily, usually checking it several times to see if they had received new messages. The amount of time spent on Facebook at each log-in varied from just a few minutes to more than an hour.
