Abstract/Artist Statement

This purpose of this study is to determine whether Facebook has the effect of lowering University students’ grade point averages (GPA’s). The majority of studies have shown that Facebook users have lower GPAs than non-users. This study will use the survey method administered as a questionnaire. The survey will be conducted amongst University students and it will be administered anonymously. This study predicts that heavy Facebook use will be positively correlated with lower academic performance.
