Social media does tend to have a negative impact on a student's life, but this is not always the case. Everything has its own good and bad aspects. It is up to the concerned person which aspect he chooses. An excess of anything is bad and so is the case with social media. The student should be aware of the demarcating line that differentiates the pros and the cons of social media.
Any person who will substitute his practical social life with the digital version will definitely be at harm. This holds truely for both the students as well as adults.
Social media gives students an easy platform to explore the world, learn about its achievements, make contacts and get inspirations from the accomplishments of others. Any student who knows to maintain a balance between personal and digital life will never be at harm.
A well balance guided approach can really help to monitor control.
