STUDY: Overindulgence In Facebook Harms StudentsAugust 8, 2011 No Comments
For every study we see that says social media helps students, another one says it harms them. A new set of results indicates that overuse of the technology poses distractions, but Facebook can be healthy when used in moderation.
Larry Rosen, PhD, (pictured) a social media researcher at California State University, Dominguez Hills, presented study results Saturday at an American Psychological Association meeting in Washington D.C. He revealed that while many teens who use Facebook tend to be more self-absorbed, the medium also helps foster healthy relationships, which is a dire necessity in teenage development.APPLICATION INTEGRATION
