The truth about Facebook and grades infographic

Posted by reyjunco on December 6, 2011 in Research |

The truth about Facebook and gradesI’m very excited that yet another graphic designer has taken me up on my offer to work with me on creating a graphic that accurately represents the results of one of my research papers. This one is based on my paper Too much face and not enough books: The relationship between multiple indices of Facebook use and academic performance published in Computers in Human Behavior.

I really would love to see this become a trend– infographics that are as much info as they are graphics. Elsewhere, I picked apart an infographic reporting some of my research on Facebook. I also lamented how it would be nice to see an infographic that included a more balanced approach to research findings (including limitations). Lucky for me, graphic designers read my blog. The first infographic based on my research did a great job summarizing the findings of my recent Facebook and student engagement paper.

I’ve got some ideas for infographics based on recent data that I’ll be working on in the near future. What data would you like to see represented in an infographic? Please leave your suggestions in the comments below.

    Thanks so much for posting the infographic.  This is a great way to make your research really accessible, quick and easy to use – one more way to communicate your work! I first saw it posted on the CareerGeek blog and followed the link back to here and just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it.  I will be sharing it with my second year management students, when we talk about personal impact and how others percieve you in a couple of weeks time.
