Sarah Cargill on the GettingSmart blog features a new infographic from the clever folks at OnlinePHD.org

showing the impact of Facebook on higher education.  Some tidbits:

1) College who are actively engaged Facebook are more likely to graduate

2) Less engaged Facebook users are more likely to be playing games online

A study in correlation≠causation or a good reason to waste more time online?  Decide for yourself!
