Facebook is not conducive to effective studying, is it?

One of my students posted this infographic on, wait for it, my module's Facebook page.  The conclusion it comes to is, well, inconclusive but there are strong hints that, in its current guise, social media is more of a distraction than it is an effective learning tool.  It also suggets that some platforms are better than others for engagement in the classroom (Twitter vs Facebook). What do you think?
