The study's co-author, Ohio State University doctoral student Aryn Karpinski, evaluated 219 students who attend at OSU -- 117 graduates and 102 undergraduates -- during the summer and fall quarters last year. Of the 148 who admitted to using Facebook, their GPAs of 3.0 to 3.5 were lower than the 3.5 to 4.0 GPAs of non-Facebook users.
On average, Facebook users studied one to five hours per week, with non-Facebook users studying between 11 and 15 hours each week.
