Melbourne, Jul 18: A new study of Australian parents revealed that social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter are making teen web surfers dumber.

New cyber-safety research conducted by Newspoll revealed that parents believe the sites are affecting their kids' health and wellbeing.

The research commissioned by Telstra also revealed that 65 percent of parents with children using social media say it distracts them from their homework, contributing to lethargic learning.

The research revealed 84 percent of 14 to 17 year old children use a social network and almost half of 10 to 13 year old use sites such as Facebook.
