CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION
Perceptions are that social media platforms are used for non-academic purposes. However, this study has revealed that 57% of UB students were using it for academic purposes and this shows that more students of UB continuously benefit from social media platforms. The study further revealed that 69% of respondents have their academic performance affected positively by social media platforms. In this technological era that the youth of today cannot do without social media, the study uncovered that time spent on these platforms’ accounts for the success or failure of the users. The adverse effects that could cause individual disorders i.e. psychological or emotional could be reduced or curbed if frequent training and counseling sections are organized in this regard. These practices will go a long way to keep students on track whenever they are using these platforms. Further studies could be conducted on the health implications of frequent usage of social media platforms.
In a snapshot of the findings of this study, the following recommendations are made:
- Social media webpages should be expanded with pages created to enhance academic activities and avoid setbacks in the students’ academic performance
- Counseling programs must be designed for UB students to understand themselves and manage their study time to avoid interruptions from social media.
- For Government and other regulatory bodies, a policy for all social media platform suppliers to monitor and block youth who overspend time on these platforms.
- Educational Stake holders must enforce such policies with stringent supervision.
- Parents and caretakers must always monitor and guide wards on all their activities on social media platforms for better academic rewards.
