Does Facebook Make You Dumb?

Posted: Apr 14, 2009
A recent study, released on Monday, concludes that Facebook users (at the college level) have lower GPAs than those who do not use Facebook. It does seem like the study is pretty worthless since it doesn't answer any "whys" and the data is too small (only 219 people) to make any real conclusions, but it is intriguing none the less.

The data showed that Facebook users had an average GPA of between 3 and 3.5 compared to non-Facebook users which have an average of 3.5 to 4. If that pans out, there is a pretty significant difference. The author points out that the study doesn't show which variable dependent in this correlation (i.e., Does Facebook use lower your GPA or do people with lower GPAs use Facebook?) but it is undeniable that there is a connection between the two.

So what do you think? Does Facebook make you dumb or are you dumb if you use Facebook?
