Abstract

The study concerned with the effect of Social Media on Academic Performance of Secondary School Students”. This study used quantitative approach and probability sampling. In the data collection methods questionnaire was used. This study was conducted in Osun state Nigeria and the two schools which were studied are Ilobu Commercial Grammar School and Ima High School. 20 students from each school to make a total of 60 students, this was done so as to minimize the possibility of sampling errors. The study analyzed data by using Microsoft Excel and present data by using bar chart, pie chart and tables. 

This study observes that students do not spend too much time in social media networks compared to their academic schedules. The findings of the study shows that WhatsApp is the most frequently used soedcial media followed by Facebook, Twitter Instagram and other social media. The findings of this study shows that most reason which pushes students to use social media networks is talking to their friends on different issues rather than studying. This shows that most students like to chat rather than studying.

It is recommended that social media users must ensure they understand why they are joining the social media site in the first place so that they would not be overcome by any negative impacts but rather they can use these sites for maximum benefit.
