Effect of Online Social Networking on Student Academic Performance

... related to time use or the GPA, while elevated TUES scores were directly tied to higher GPAs and overall academic achievement. Although all of these studies seem to point to the benefits of using study time wisely to increase GPA and academic performance, it is necessary to also address some more negative influences on time utilization, such as multi-tasking and distractions. A study done by Junco, R., & Cotton, S. (2011), examines the effect that multitasking has 5 on college GPA’s. With the increasing availability of social media, such as Facebook and text messaging, more students have engaged in multitasking as a way to manage their lives. By analyzing the results of a web survey they had conducted, Junco and Cotton found that these technologies have been an interruption because students spend much time using them while doing schoolwork, thereby fractioning their concentration and limiting absorption of new material. This has led to a decrease in students’ academic performance and overall GPA. Students might attempt to dispute these findings, however, claiming they spend quite a few hours each week studying, while grossly under-reporting the amount of this study time being spent in social networking pursuits. Having such self-reported data can skew an entire study and make its findings inconsistent, along with neglecting the many other means students use to distract themselves from actual studying. An article by Brint, S., & Cantwell, A. (2006), for example, makes......

... other via email addresses. In the late 1990s, user profiles became a central feature of social networking sites, allowing users to compile lists of "friends" and search for other users with similar interests. New social networking methods were developed by the end of the 1990s and many sites began to develop more advanced features for users to find and manage friends.[13] This newer generation of social networking sites began to flourish with the emergence of SixDegrees.com in 1997, followed by Makeoutclub in 2000, Hub Culture and Friendster in 2002, and soon became part of the Internet mainstream. Friendster was followed by MySpace and LinkedIn a year later, and eventually Bebo. Attesting to the rapid increase in social networking sites' popularity, by 2005, it was reported that MySpace was getting more page views than Google. Facebook, launched in 2004, became the largest social networking site in the world in early 2009. JAIPUR: To keep a check on the increasing influence of social networking sites on students, some schools have started sensitization workshops while others organized seminars for viably handling social networking sites.

The Effects of Social Networking to the Study Habit of 3rd Year Him Students

... and Daughtery (2009) claim that the social networking experience is “a platform for users to compare against each other, and confirm or even enhance their selfidentity.” Users are prone to use others as a yardstick to determine their social position, construct self-concepts, and acquire self-esteem, all the while making sense of themselves and their surroundings. The accessibility of networkers’ photos, comment histories and videos provide a substantial amount of material to make judgments about others’ identities. By processing the available signs and symbols, users themselves can become more critical of the image they project. Launched in February 2004 by Harvard student Mark Zuckerburg, Facebook was originally a niche SNS for Harvard students only. However, within a short timeframe, Facebook expanded its reach to other colleges with students who had a university-registered e-mail (i.e. a ―.edu_ address). Exclusivity of the site was attractive to university students because they could communicate with one another about classes, friends, and professors, and share personal photos within a private community. ―As Facebook began supporting other schools, those users were also required to have university email addresses associated with those institutions, a requirement that kept the site relatively closed and contributed to users‘ perceptions of the site as an intimate, private community (Boyd & Ellison, 2007, p. 218). By the end of 2006, Facebook expanded its user base...

YouTube allows people to easily upload and share video clips on www.YouTube.com and across the internet through websites , mobile devices, blogs and email.

Flickr all ows users to tag photos with keywords, which creates communities around common interests or events. Section 1 How Social media is replacing Reporting In the traditional world, newspapers, corporations, governments, or other types of leading organizations simply had to give out information, and people would consume it by reading or looking at it. But this seemingly tried‐and‐ true method has started to transform. Simply making information available is not enough for today’s public. Today’s audiences expect to be able to choose what they read, and most believe they should be able to contribute content and opinions, too.

Extent of Social Networking in Study Habit

...Commemorative Speech Good evening ladies and gentlemen and fellow students. We are gathered here this evening to celebrate the graduation of Rockmart High School’s class of 2006. We have already come a long way, but there are still miles and miles ahead of us. We survived a lot to get here. We survived the grueling class hours, the teachers, and the mountains of homework. We also survived the five bomb threats we had this year, and the lockdown that came with them. We could not have survived this far without our parents to back us up. They were there to encourage us to believe that we could achieve what we set out to do. It was our parent’s support that gave us hope when we were down and struggling. It is for these reasons that today’s victory also belongs to our parents. Together we stand here on the edge of time itself looking to the future. Now we must seize the future and strive to be excellent. As for me, I miss all my friends and all the cool teachers. I will miss people accidentally setting themselves on fire in Ag Mechanics class. I will miss the morning TV show with Bryce’s Safari Adventure. I will miss the Friday night football games, and all the other sports. Even a part of me will miss the bomb threats. Earlier I called this a high school, but it is more like an airport terminal with hundreds of planes. As we each go to board a plane we wonder, “Where will it take us”, but one thing is for sure once we depart each of us will soar high, fast, and far...
