DO FACEBOOK USERS GET LOWER GRADES? CONTOH AYAT SAMADA (PERSUADE, STATISTIC, INTERVIEW, PETIKAN ARTICLE…. ) “I was in the library trying to write a 2000 word essay when I realized my facebook habit had got out of hand.

Daisy deactivated her facebook account when she became concerned about the impact her frequent visits to the social networking site was having on her studies (Leake & Warren, 2009). A 2009 study by Karpinki and Duberstein seems to confirm Daisy’s fears : according to the researchers, American college students who use the 750 million-member social network have significantly lower grade-point averages (GPAs) than those who do not (cited in Hamilton, 2009).
After conducting a survey of 219 undergraduate and graduate students, the researchers found that the GPAs of facebook users typically ranged a full grade poin lower than those of non-users – 3. 0 to 3. 5 for users versus 3. 5 to 4. 0 for their non-networking peers (cited in Hamilton, 2009). Yet despite this evidence to suggest that facebook users are at risk of performing less well in their studies, there are those who dispute the conclusions drawn from these findings and argue that more research into all aspect of the social networking phenomenon are needed before such pronouncement can be made.
