BE SOCIAL OR SUCCESSFUL The effects of social media on academic success

Students under the age of 17 spend too much time on social media. The amount of time that a student spends on media can take away from his or her academics. Because of this, social media has a negative effect on academic success.

The images above depict the distraction social media can have not only when one is out enjoying the outdoors, but also when there is work that needs to be done, whether it be academically or work related.
Social media can be a distraction even during school hours while the teacher or professor is conducting a class or lecture. This affects academics directly as the student puts media as a priority instead of investing in his or her education.
It is better for parents to restrict a child under the age of 17 from social media so that the child can achieve academic success.
