    Study: 20 Percent Of Teens Wake Up During Night To Check Facebook
    September 15, 2015 11:18 AM

    MENLO PARK, Calif. (CBS Sacramento) — A new study finds that 20 percent of teenagers wake up during the night to check their Facebook.

    According to the Irish Mirror, researchers found that teens waking up in the middle of the night to use Facebook or other social media sites are leaving them tired at school.

    The study also found that more than a third of those aged 12 to 15 wake up at least once a week to check or post messages.

    “It seems important to discourage social media use during the night,” Dr. Kimberly Horton, of the Wales Institute of Social and Economic Research, Data and Methods, told the Irish Mirror. “No effort to develop regular bedtimes or lengthen time in bed would compensate for the disruption nighttime use can cause.”

    Why would anyone be upset by this? They're dumb kids that do dumb things. Guess what? The next generation will do even stupider shit, and these kids that check facebook will mock and feel superior to them also.

    I've mentioned here before that if I happen to wake up at night I feel compelled to grab my god damn ipad and look at meaningless crap. I don't consciously do it, it just happens. As a consequence I lose hours of sleep a week. This is a sickness. Who can I sue?

    yeah like first response said, teens don't go on Facebook. Twitter is much more important. Even that probably isn't that cool anymore. Maybe Instagram. Or whatever is cooler than Instagram.....that's where the kids are these days.


    Facebook is for 40 year olds.

    Instagram is all the rage right now. Facebook is kinda passé.

    Edit. I didn't know how to put that mark thing on passe so I had to google it and copy and paste it. How embarrassing. Can anyone tell me what its called again? I'm having a brain shit right now
