One more reason to delete Facebook that has nothing to do with privacy or mental health

People have taken breaks from Facebook, the biggest social network on the planet, in an effort to improve their mental health and due to concerns about their privacy. Students whose grades are below average could boost their results if they devoted less time to Facebook and other social-networking sites, according to research published this week. The study, led by James Wakefield, a senior lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney, examined the time first-year university students spent on Facebook and how it impacted their grades.
