Many parents may be wary when their kids frequently go on social media sites, but the 'The Truth About Facebook and Grades' Infographic puts this grief to rest.

The infographic reveals that 92% of all students use Facebook. On average a student spends about 106 minutes per day browsing the site. But, the good news is that even though time spent on the site negatively impacts grades, everything depends on how much time is spent on the site.

In fact, some activities on Facebook could even boost the grades of students. Sharing links and checking up on friends is known to have a positive impact on students' grades whereas making regular status updates harms them. It may not be Facebook, but how you interact with this site that makes all the difference.
