Introduction

Social media is used to communicate with other people sitting far away. Social networks can satisfy people’s respect because it is used by a person who can present themselves to others who have similarities in the idea and have general interest. The popularity of social networking sites is increasing day by day. As always, only young people were interested in using these social networking sites, but now its craze is evolving into adults too. However, the effect of the social site is not good because people are becoming addicted to it.

Talking about social networking sites, we must first define the most popular sites. Facebook is popular for everyone, where a person can share photos, videos, upload status and many other things. Next is Twitter, through which anyone can tweet your post, this is the most popular among celebrities and al.

Because of these sites, face-to-face conversations are getting low and people are discussing more through these sites. Due to these sites, people are also making friends outside the country. With this we can reach beyond our boundaries.

Because of this, celebrities are more in touch with their fans, they can easily connect with them. They can now easily update their latest movie or any event that is going to happen. Although he is sometimes trolled on it.Family members can organize the program through it. They can connect with other family members who are easily sitting abroad.

Literature Review

According to the study conducted by various authors, there are many conclusions on the subject and also related to it.

Basharah, Giyama and Abdelrahman (2014) told the students of the University of Jordan that their relationship to using Facebook and their social intelligence, as well as the relationship between the self-aware measures of social use of the students and their social intelligence aims at. to do. In Jordan, there were 282 students of various public university colleges. For the purpose of the study, researchers used cross-sectional survey design in which a questionnaire was administered and several faculty members were gathered in the classroom, who had agreed to participate in this study in their classes. The objective of the questionnaire was to collect data about Facebook’s students as well as their social intelligence. An analysis of the collected data has shown that most student Facebook users were active. The perceptions of the level of participants of social intelligence were of positive and middle level. This study disagrees with the general negative reputation in the Arab world, Facebook’s influence on the social life of students. In addition, the study showed that using Facebook can give students the benefit of social skills and intelligence so that they can be provided an electronic platform that they can use to freely express.

Khan (2013) has detected the effect of social networking websites on students. A research questionnaire has been prepared to determine the factors of social networking websites, which have an impact on students. The identified variables are age, gender, education, social impact and academic performance. 168 respondents who were only students were selected randomly. The data was statistically analysed using descriptive statistics, correlation, retrograde, Chi Square etc. The study concluded that students between the ages of 15 and 25 used to mostly use social networking websites for entertainment. 60% of male students usually use social networking websites for knowledge. Graduate students generally prefer social networking websites for entertainment. This research study also found that people can use social networking websites due to social impact. This study determines that most students use social networking websites due to their friends and its average sample is 67.3%. Students with 3.0 to 3.5 GPA (grade average average) mostly use social networking websites for entertainment.

Lipinsky-Harton and Taaffodie (2013) compared the degree of attitude moderation with online chat produced through online conversations. There were 142 graduate students (86 women and 56 men) who attended the University of Toronto. In response to a set of public trial questions administered at the beginning of the academic period, the participants were recruited on the phone. Prior to the study, members of the couple were unfamiliar with each other. Each pair was randomly rated either face-to-face (FTF) or online chat (OC). FTF conversations were digitally recorded and transferred for analysis. OC conversations were automatically logged in and downloaded. The data collected was statistically analysed, SD, F-Test, Pearson correlation and Chi-square test. The face-to-face conversation and online chat were compared with the generous approach of their tendency through the contact of an anti-approach. As text-based chats predicted on the basis of another’s self-focus and low attendance, strangers chatted online about 20 minutes of divisive social issues, on which they oppose the approach. Less movement towards your partner’s status was shown.

Buhler, Neustaedter and Hillman (2013) examined how to use teens and video chats. Teens are using a video chat system to communicate with others, however, little research has been done to find out how and why they use technology. A sample of twenty teenager participants (10 men and 10 women) was recruited through snowball sampling, word-of-mouth, and posted an advertisement on sites like the Face Book and Craigslist and interviewed them with an interview. Participants used several video chat systems where the most common Skype (18/20) and followed by Face Time (10/20), Tiny Chat (3/20), MSN Messenger (3/20) and Google Hangouts (1 / 20) are included. are included. . The results show that during the school and subsequent weekends, video chat plays an important role in helping teens socialize with their friends, where they see emotional reactions and shared homework sessions, show and tell and distance performance Participate in activities. However, video chat is used to see more personal activities, such as gossip, flirting and even sexual activity. It gives an interesting design challenge to support the teen use of video chat while doing so. Access to education till demography, social networking and social networking. It has been found that the gender balance of respondents was 68% on women. Seventy percent of survey respondents indicated that they were under 25 years of age. Seventy percent of respondents were domestic students while 31% were international. Facebook was the most popular social network platform for both domestic and international students.

Array (2012) examined the students who have an approach to using social networking sites, especially Facebook, language classes. Social media has a great impact on people’s lives and millions of students are spending many hours on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube. Although millions of students around the world are using these Web 2.0 tools, but there is not much research done about the educational use of social networking. Keeping in mind the potential possibilities of these websites for educational use, this study was done at Gaziantep University of Turkey, which included 48 graduate students, who were enrolled in the compulsory English primary class of one year. The design of the research included 5 point Likert-type questionnaires and semi-structured interviews. Conclusions show that Facebook can be very useful as an educational tool. It was found that the students have a very positive attitude towards the use of Facebook activity in the form of complementary language classes, but learning traditional language based language is still a backbone for language education.

Pimmer, Linxen and Gröhbiel (2012) examined how to use student and professional social network site (SNS) in developing and emerging countries settings. The data collection included Focus Group (N = 43) which included analysis of the Facebook site focused on medical students and faculty as well as medical and clinical subjects. The findings show how users, both students and professionals see appropriate SNS from their mobile phones as a rich educational tool in terms of informal education. An analysis of the interview revealed that in addition to some exceptions, almost all interview students used Facebook on a daily basis. In the analysis, informal learning contexts in Facebook revealed the obvious forms of educational content embedded in references. Quizzes, case submissions, and related deliberate e-learning exercises that were usually found in (more) formal educational settings. From the point of view of socio-cultural learning, it has been shown that participation in such virtual business communities across national boundaries allows to declare business status and professional identities and conversations.

Saw, Abbott, Donaghhe, and McDonald (2012) studied social media for international students: this is not about Facebook. In 2010, 335 273 international students were enrolled in higher education in Australia. In order to support these students during their studies, libraries need to find ways to communicate and engage with them. The best way to learn about library services was through library web pages and personal contacts.With library staff. In order to investigate the international students’ social media preferences, the librarian in Bond decided to conduct a survey to ask the current student institution about their social networking options and use. The survey was advertised through a global student email, library website, library and computing Facebook page, and digital signage in the premises. The survey was open for three weeks and 575 full responses were collected. Data collected by using Microsoft Excel 2010 was exported and analysed. Data collection and analysis were divided into three sections:

Education access to demographics, social networking and use of social networking for education. It has been found that the gender balance of the respondents was 68% over the women. Seventy percent of survey respondents indicated that they were under 25 years of age. Seventy percent of respondents were domestic students while 31% were international. Facebook was the most popular social network platform for both domestic and international students. Most respondents in all countries are using Facebook several times a day. It has also been found in the survey that over 60% of respondents use Facebook to share information and use it to get more than 50% of the information. And 91% of respondents use Facebook for educational purposes.

Eren (2012) examined students who have a view towards using social networking sites, especially Facebook, language classes. Social media has a great impact on people’s lives and millions of students are spending many hours on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube. Although millions of students around the world are using these Web 2.0 tools, there is not much research done about the educational use of social networking. Keeping in mind the potential possibilities of these websites for educational use, this study was done at a University of Gaziantep in Turkey, which had 48 graduate students, who were enrolled in the compulsory English elementary class of one year. The design of the research included 5 point Likert-type questionnaires and semi-structured interviews. Conclusions show that Facebook can be very useful as an educational tool. It was found that students have a very positive attitude towards the use of Facebook activity in the form of complementary language classes, but learning traditional language based language is still a backbone for language education.

Veletsianos (2011) has studied Twitter on the involvement and practices of higher education scholars. Scholars participate in online social networks for professional purposes. In these types of networks, learning is involved in learning and making identities as recognition and contribution to network practices. While describing the possible benefits of current literature , Empirical research of scholars is negligible on the use of online social networks in online partnership, educational technology literature. The purpose of this study is to understand the natural practices of scholars in particular in social networks, and especially on Twitter. 45 scholarly tweets have been qualitatively analysed for coming to the main topics describing online social network practice. Conclusions show that scholars (1) participating on Twitter shared information, resources and media related to their professional practice; (2) shared information about their class and their students; (3) Ask and suggest suggestions from others; (4) engaged in social commentary; (5) engaged in digital identity and impression management; (6) Demand for the network and to build relationships with others; And (7) highlighted their involvement in online networks other than Twitter. These findings help the field in understanding the emerging practice of scholarly participation in the online network.

Lim and Meier (2011) studied international students using social network services in a new culture: a case study with Korean youth in the United States. In the United States, international students, especially from Asia, have experienced difficulty in adjusting their new life and culture. Very few research has been done to understand the role of Social Network Service (SNS), including instant messaging, blogs, chatting websites, and emails for these students. Korean students are the largest international student group in the United States and they were selected for qualitative study. For data collection, participants were interviewed individually. The results showed that participants used SNS in different ways for their emotional well-being and for educational purposes. Most participants preferred Internet messaging for other communication tools.

Lampe, Wohn, Vitak, Alison and Wash (2011) examined that undergraduate students use social networking site Facebook for affiliate activities related to classroom (such as arranging study groups, learning about curriculum procedures), Facebook’s How can it be used? An informal device that students use to organize their classroom experiences, and find out the factors that predict the type of usage. Data of two surveys (N = 302, n = 214) is used to analyze that the use of Facebook, social and psychological factors, self-efficacy, and the instructions of Facebook or Student Communication is positive among students and Negative is related. Collaboration data was analysed using statistical techniques, SD, factor analysis and regression analysis. They found that Facebook’s predictions for organizing classroom behaviour include the self-efficacy and the alleged motivation to communicate with other people using the site.

Pempek, Yermolayeva, and Calvert (2009) studied the social networking experiences of college students on Facebook. Millions of contemporary young adults use social networking sites. However, very few people know about how much, how and how to use these sites. In this study, 92 undergraduates completed a diary measure each day for one week, daily social-time reporting and popular social networking site responded to the check list of activities to assess their use of Facebook. At the end of the week, they also completed a follow up survey. The data was described using descriptive and diminishing statistics. Results indicated that students use Facebook almost 30 minutes a day as part of their routine. The students used to talk on Facebook using one-on-one style, in which they were the creators to spread the content for their friends. Even so, they spent more time watching content on Facebook than actually posting content. Facebook was used most for social interaction(45%), mainly with friends with whom the students had offline connections already , for entertainment purpose (23%) and to share information (12%) and for educational purpose (20%). In addition to the classic identity marks of emerging adulthood, such as religion, political ideology, and work, young adults also used the media preferences to express their identity. The effects of the use of social networking sites are discussed for the development of identity and peer relationships.

Dawson (2008) traced the relationship between a student’s status and the alleged level of community in the social network of the class. Quantitative methods, such as the Row methods (2002b), were included in Classroom Community Scale and Social Network Centrifugal measures, to assess the level of community and their status within the social network of the classroom. To further clarify this relationship, qualitative methods like discussion platform material analysis and student interview were adopted. Statistical analysis included simple minimum class regression analysis and basic details. The results show that the measures of proximity and centrality of the degree are positive predictors. The feeling of a person’s community being reported, while negativity indicates a negative correlation. Qualitative analysis indicates that a person’s external social network affects the support of pre-existing external type and information affects the exchange of needs of a person and therefore, the level of community feeling is finally experienced.

Bakker, Sloep and Jochems (2007) studied students and instant messaging: a survey of current uses and demands for higher education. The researchers wanted to know about how students currently use IM and what opportunities they look for themselves. By that end, he did a survey and a sample of 781 students answered in the online survey of the University of Applied Sciences in the Fortunes University in the Netherlands. The questionnaire was based on the questions of the use of IM. To analyse the data statistically, frequency, percentage, and correlation analysis were used. Survey shows that 96% of all respondents use IM Most participating students indicated the use of IM for their studies. Apart from this, when asked about their demands for a potential educational implementation, the majority were positive.

Conclusion

From the above studies, the final conclusion is that the impact of social media is good to some extent for the children . Because with the help of it they can do their studies. But extra usage of it can harm them. One must carefully examine the pros and cons of social media before engaging too much in social media. If used in correct way it can be proofed a boon for mankind.

As a student one must balance everything for a healthy life, i.e. one’s studies, sports and the use of social media. With the help of social media the student can be smart students. This will help in growth of the economy also because youth is the future of the country.
