This Scientific American article on a study that suggests a correlation between Facebook and higher levels of unhappiness does a pretty balanced job of evaluating the merits and flaws of the study’s findings. This paragraph below sums it the article’s concluding remarks on the study after discussing its limitations:

Notice the words in bold (mine) that illustrate how the article employs a series of connectors, adjectives and verbs to argue for the importance of the study’s impacts even though its methodology had several shortcomings.
