However, though representing carefree-ness, the student populace around the world indeed carries a duty to perform. Since they are the community over which the present day generation will bestow the responsibility of the world, behaving in a proper and prudent way is always expected from them. But, quite unfortunately, nowadays this is one aspect at which the Gen-X of 22nd century falters the most. Instead of cordiality, fellow-feeling, and amiability towards the globe, the vibes of selfishness, coning and opportunism are the behavioral mannerisms of the contemporary young society. A primary cause of this can be attributed to the notion of how social media affects students with its various maliciously beguiling attractions.

Social media can only affect those students that don't know what they want out of life. If you are a focused and purpose driven student, I don't see how you can succumb to the distractions posed by social media. Only those students that are not serious are the ones that can be affected by the ever busy world of social media.
If not using social media in a right way, yes it could affect their lives by too much spending on social media and doing their homework and not concentrating on their studies.

Social media brings a big impact on Students. As I observed online, some students are envy on some students when they see them posting about their cars online, going to school. Some are posting luxurious things which belittle some students. However, some students are open-minded with this kind of things that they use social media to uplift themselves because maybe they don't have luxurious things at present but they will in the future if they will just make their dreams come true. I feel bad when it affects them. They don't need to feel sorry about themselves because they can't have other students have. I just hope that there are people posting quotes or messages about having it all doesn't mean you are successful. What is important is your conscience is clear and you are doing good thing.

Social media is really a distraction to students,the spend more time viewing and responding to chats that will add little to their well-being than doing their home work or studying after school.If parent need the kids to concentrate, there shouldn't be internet connection on any phone handed to a child.
That is true, and it also happen that they can get bullied because of posting something on social media.

Social Media has its impact on student in both ways positively and negatively. But nonetheless social media now a days very much important for a student to get daily update of everyday's world. If a student uses the social media the right way that he/she supposed to be then they can be benefited from the information that social media provides. Now almost everything in the world become online to reach maximum customers. so social media is a valuable platform to promote, sell, and spread awareness. it can help a student life by giving him knowledge about latest job vacancies, trending technologies and so much more. so from my point of view social media can be a blessing if being used properly.

Yes social media has both positive and negative effects on students. Let's look at the positive ones before taking it to negative effects. Social media has been of good help to students since it is a major source of information and students need to access this information as much as they can. On the other hand social media takes most of students time and concentration. For instance you find students twitting while the lecturer is lecturing.

Social media can have both good and bad effects on students. Students should know how to use it so that they would benefit from it. Social media could be a great way for students to stay connected with each other and share their thoughts and help one another and exchange lessons and tips. They can join groups like on Facebook that are specific to a certain subject and ask and answer other students' questions.  But it can also have a very bad effect on them. Social media can be very distracting and we see most students nowaday are neglecting their studies and focusing more on social media platforms trying to become ''famous''. It's a total waste of time if you don't use social media platforms in a way that's beneficial to you.

Social media can be a force for good and for positive change.  However if a student is on social media and being bullied or put down, the student needs to get off social media.  They could create a fake profile.  But I don't recommend it.  Why can't you be real?  Why can't you be yourself?  If you were in an environment and that environment was hostile, scary, etc., would you want to stay there?  If the social media network is the same as a frightening dangerous physical environment, there is no law that says you have to be there.  LEAVE!!  It's a sign of maturity and smart thinking and protecting yourself.  Oh sure!  You could report the people harassing you to the Zuckerberg-types in charge of the network.  But ... the social media giants are wrestling with some really Big Monsters like Russia and Iran.  They're kind of busy and your "problem" might not be a priority.

There are two sides to using social media, either good or bad. In general, most teens are using them. It is how modernization has been influencing them. We cannot stop them because it is a way of being connected with their friends. However, they need to be guided. There are some instances that they were in trouble or in a difficult situation, such as being bullied, victims of predators, 

The pros and cons vary in people's way of thinking. At present, we need to be vigilant in using them. Social media has various fake information or news. We need to consider spending time to research about a particular issue or concern. If we cannot do this simple course of action, it will result to having misnomer facts.

These days, we need to secure ourselves and same with the students against scammers or hackers. With this pandemic, more and more evil deeds are happening because of them. If this pandemic will continue, the more they will take the chance of cheating innocent people.
