The Dangers of Facebook

Abstract

Social networking sites have been around for a long time but just recently, within the decade, they have been experiencing exponential growth. Facebook is the media’s leading social networking site and it is dominant among today’s youth. In the present study, 91 participants were asked a variety of questions in order to assess the kind of impact Facebook had on an individual’s GPA. Facebook usage and GPA was shown to have no correlation, rs=.035. The findings were due to lack of control throughout the experiment and an insufficient amount of participants.
