The biggest impact that social media has had on education. is overall better communication with peers and teachers. A student can connect with anyone at any point in time via text message, email or various other messaging platforms. They can use such platforms via their smartphone, tablet or computer, and learners can ask questions, make phone calls or video calls. If a student is stuck with their homework, they can always communicate with their friends or tutors online. They don’t need to wait and meet the teacher physically. Social media promotes learning by offering support with sharing documents, presentations and files while allowing users to work on projects simultaneously, while not physically being near one another. Social networking sites can also facilitate discussion of homework and assignment topics and provide a base for research and fact-finding initiatives 


Various websites and social media networks are providing plenty of information that can be helpful to students such as social media news feeds, students can find informational and relevant websites they want to follow to be kept in the loop. Through the use of social media, depending on their interests, students can find answers to their questions and can offer children inspiration for school projects or practical problem-solving. Students can also watch videos, view pictures and read blogs, many of which have educational benefits. The educational benefits of social networking sites are also those that help students prepare for important lessons and learn certain concepts. Social media websites will contain the latest data on various school subjects and thus, the students have the opportunity to survey and look into what is new. 


It is very obviously observed that students are bored with reading and writing. With attention spans getting shorter and shorter, the internet and social media provide plenty of online information which often students are more inclined to read, especially if these pieces of information include eye-catching animations. Online messages, comments, news, articles, and books provide an endless list of information to be read, and students are motivated to devote their time and put some extra efforts towards their learning. Such online activities contribute to a child’s general learning, and kids eventually develop stronger reading habits resulting in a drastic improvement in their writing abilities. Social media sites are in the most part interactive and this keeps the student involved.
