Facebook Doesn't Make you Dumb

Facebook is a tool that can be used for a multitude of purposes.  There's been talk about the link between Facebook and learning success.  I don't think the outcome is related to the tool but rather to the person using the tool.  Someone like me turns Facebook into a personal learning network machine.  New parents may turn it into a place to celebrate their new baby.  Social teens may use it for socializing.  The point being that Facebook doesn't turn people into "things" but rather it is a tool to suit the needs of the user. 

The following infographic does a nice job of explaining this as it relates to education.
