Facebook May Help Memory
(KUTV) Spending time on Facebook may sound like a sure fire way to turn your brain to mush.
But a recent study found hanging out on the site can actually benefit the minds of older Americans.
Researchers found adults over the age of 65 performed 25% better on memory exercises after learning to use Facebook, compared to their counterparts who didn't.
Previous studies have showed that learning a new skill and social interaction can sharpen mental abilities.
