THE EFFECTS OF ONLINE SOCIAL NETWORK ON STUDENTS ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background to the Study

Social networking is becoming an increasing part of young generation life relative to the general humanity; students and young adults are the heaviest social net work users. The influence of on line social networking usage on the academic performance of student in secondary school is becoming an alarming issue. Karpinski (2009) observes that today’s children are spoiled, love luxury, their food is overtime devouring entertainment, communication and every form of social network, electronic communicators and the first to hustle into any new technology. They live in the recent popular social networks such as facebook, 2go and whatsapp.

Anywhere you see them with friends the question is, are you on online? Students are always ready to embrace the latest technology, fashion and its electronic applications. The fact that children make use of electronic devices and are called digital natives does not make them good users of social network that are at their disposal, Social network usage may have an influence on the academic performance of students in secondary schools.

Moon (2011) agrees that the time students need to improve on their study habit, they invest their time in browsing through their cell phone or computer modem to connect themselves to face book,2go and whats app.The time they may use in doing their homework, assignment and consulting literature for their academic performance is used in social networking, posting comments, sending pictures and carrying out social activities, some students at the interest of accessing their online social network, spent the money given to them for their school programme or material may be used to update the online social network account in order to have megabits which will enable them to go online networking while their study suffer deficiency due to lack of material and truancy in some of the school activities.

The influence of online social networking overdose is becoming traumatic among secondary school students because some who are addicted to the usage tend to display some anti social behaviour and aggressive tendencies. Students that are in secondary school are still within the range of adolescent and teenagers who are eager to exploit any latest invention and fashion to suit their youthful exhobirance. In this case social networking usage by secondary school students deserves close monitoring to ensure that it does not cause more harm than good.

Statement of the Problem

The only way to acknowledge the reality of the delivery done by teachers in schools is through academic performance of students. Academic performance has been affected by many factors, but the most prevailing factor today is the online social networking usage among secondary school students. Secondary school students’ involvement in online social networking usage is becoming an alarming issue because virtually all students in secondary school own mobile phones at home and sometimes go to school with them secretly, not for school work but to connect friends for the purpose of social interaction. Academic performance in secondary school is facing much deterioration due to students’ inability to maximize the study time and habit and concentrate on their school work which has been taken over by online social networking activities.
