No, Facebook Is Not Ruining Your Grades [STUDY] - Yahoo! News

Actual results may vary

The study, published last week in Computers in Human Behavior, analyzes 1,839 college students' survey data about Facebook use and actual grades (as opposed to self-reported grades). It also takes into account students' high-school GPAs.

On average, students say they spend 106 minutes on Facebook per day. Each increase of 93 minutes beyond 106 minutes correlates with a GPA decrease of .12 grade points -- statistically significant, but not dramatic when applied to a real-world situation.
