68% of Facebook users score lower grade-point average!

Hmmm..these are the kind of statistics that newspapers love to expound but which are pretty meaningless. Cause or effect? Do people who aren't so great at studying use Facebook too much or does using Facebook too much affect your grades? What percentage of those who 'used' alcohol have lower grade-point average, or those who watched a lot of TV, or read too much, or work too much or....still maybe there's something in it...but isn't Facebook so last-year anyway?

I love stats like this. Where are they sourced? Who conducts them? What methodologies, besides a quiet day in the newsroom, are used?
