Is social networking a great distraction from education?

Background and context

Social networking is the grouping of individuals into specific groups. For online social networking, websites are commonly used. These websites are known as social sites. Social networking websites function like an online community of Internet users. Depending on the website in question, many of these online community members share common interests in hobbies, religion, or politics. Once you are granted access to a social networking website you can begin to socialize. This socialization may include reading the profile pages of other members and possibly even contacting them.

Social Networking websites allow users to build on-line profiles, share information, pictures, blog entries, music clips, etc.

FaceBook, Twitter, Myspace, LinkedIn, Orkut, Hi5 etc are world renowned social networking websites.
