EFFECT OF SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES ON ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study

Social networking websites are currently being used regularly my millions of people. The use of social networking sites has been widespread that they have not only caught the attention of academic and industry researchers worldwide but also us, in particular. Social networking sites are now being investigated by numerous social science researchers and an increasing number of academic commentators are becoming more and more interested in studying Facebook, Twitter,and other social networking services, because of their probable impact on society.While the social networking sites have the same key aspects, the cultures and responses around them that become apparent are varied. Most sites help strangers connect with others based on shared personal interests, political and economic views, or simply recreational activities.Some sites accommodate distinct viewers, while others attract people based on similarities, such as common languages or shared racial, sexual, religious or nationality-based identities.Nonetheless, social networking sites have only one common goal. It is to encourage new ways to communicate and share information.Many students have been blaming various social networking sites for their steady decrease in grade point averages. This emergent phenomenon aroused us to look into social networking sites and why they affect fellow students‟ academic performances.

For the past years, social networking has been very popular for people worldwide. Social networking is a great form of entertainment. It is like going to a new school, on your first day you have no friends but as days pass you will meet new friends and eventually you‟ll form groups or circle of friends. At first, you don‟t have much interest in your new school but when you begin to learn and enjoy more about your school, you will be happy to spend much of your time in school with your friends, teachers and etc. It is open for all kinds of people, all ages, and all races. A purpose of social networking is we meet people, maybe people we met before like old classmates or schoolmate or new people from different races and countries, we just have same interests with.
While the term “social network site” is used to describe this phenomenon, the term“social networking sites” also appears in public discourse, and the two terms are often used interchangeably. “Networking” emphasizes relationship initiation, often between strangers.While networking is possible on these sites, it is not the primary practice on many of them, nor isit what differentiates them from other forms of computer-mediated communication (CMC).
