A study has proven what parents, teachers, and the students themselves already knew; putting more time in to socializing on Facebook rather than studying leads to poor performance on tests. That bit is hardly a shocker.

83% of 16 to 24 year olds in Britain use social networking sites to keep in touch and talk to friends. With the mass of people using social networking like Facebook, many offices have banned access to such sites.

The study was performed in the US and polled 219 undergraduate students about study practices and general internet use along with specific usage of Facebook. Usage time for the site varied from minutes to hours according to the study.
