U.K. College Students Value Facebook Over Sex

U.K. college students think Facebook and their cell phones are more important than sex.

U.K. college students think Facebook and their cell phones are more important than sex.

That comes from a survey of 2,818 U.K. college students by Student Beans. Yes, the whole study was about sex.

Actually, there was only a one percent difference between those who value Facebook more than sex, or vice versa — 11 percent versus 10 percent.

That’s probably too close of a difference to call. Perhaps it’s more telling just fact that a survey about students and sex even includes a question about whether Facebook or cell phones are most important.

And speaking of more telling data points, 24 percent of the students said cell phones are the most important thing in their lives.

The only other tidbit relevant to social networking in this study was the finding that 20 percent of the students have broken up via text messages of some form, and four percent have done so on Facebook.

We’ve excerpted the Facebook-related part of Student Beans’ infographic on the study findings below. Let us know what you think about this data in the comments section.
