    Yeah! i love Facebook and yet i think i'm doing OK, but saying that, if i didn't have my own laptop to acess at my own free will (after every hour of work, i insisit on a a "break" which normally lasts 2 hours) but as long as we just use it to write/read messages and not actually waste time Browsing, then we shouldn't get carried away?

    As I am sure so do those who have mobile phones. Facebook is a social networking site... does it not make seem more likely that it is down to the type of person who used facebook rather than the website itself?

    I mean if you have facebook you are more likely to be social and therefore will have less time and or motivation to study.
    oh crap
    I've been wanting some of that motivation stuff for ages!
    now I'm just the wrong kind of person? damn
    will it make a difference if I quit?
    give me some motivation please!!!!!!

    I'm on Facebook all the time and it hasn't done me any harm, although I can see the logic in the argument.

    I'm now tempted to get a friend to change my password and not tell me what it is until after the exams.
    This will only make a big change if I also get a TSR ban.
    And get someone to change my Flickr password.
    And take my phone away from me.
    And remove the TVs from my house.

    Argh.

    Good thing. Facebook obsessives with over 1000 "friends" probably don't deserve a decent position within the modern economy.

    Anyone who does any activity to the extent that it limits revision could well find that they might not do as well as they could have. But that can be applied to so many things other than facebook; someone who literally never left their house in order to revise would probably be in a pretty good position to do well, but we're not advocating young people becoming housebound..

    no,

    Those that choose not to use facebook could be the types to do better in exams.
    saying that facebook causes the drop in results as opposed to saying the same thing that causes facebook obsession is the same thing that causes the drop in results can not be done.

    I'm getting annoyed at supposedly reputable sources (times) mis-using statistics.

    I do use Facebook far too much. But thats because people dont tend to use their bloody phones any more! All my social invitations are given to me on that website! If I deactivated my account I'd instantly feel cut off from everybody. Its quite ridiculous.

    I highly doubt think it's just facebook though. There are plenty of other distractions on the internet (*cough* TSR *cough*)

    Perhaps a study needs to be developed to assess how better these people do after deactivating just their facebook account..
