  Media Sensationalization of Social Science Research: Social Networking *In
*sites <http://www.tcrecord.org/Content.asp?ContentID=15642>
by Aryn Karpinski
 Pros and cons exist in publicizing findings from exploratory conference
presentations such as posters. Studies have shown that media reports about
conference presentations of exploratory work, predominantly in medicine,
often omit basic study facts and limitations. The social sciences appear to
suffer enormously from media misreporting. The current commentary discusses
this topic and the general media sensationalization of exploratory social
science research, using one such study that examined the relationship
between Facebook and academic performance as a case example. The commentary
also notes the media and research community's response to the example
exploratory study and media hype, and provides suggestions for future
research acquired from a graduate researcher's venture into the field of
technology and education, specifically social-networking sites and
education. Although conclusiveness may never be attained, the impact of
social networking sites on college student lif e should be investigated
comprehensively through respectful cross-discipline collaboration and
collegiality between novice and experienced researchers.
