  Effects of Social Media in the Academic Performance of Senior High students Of Palawan National School Chapter I Introduction Background of the study The Palawan National High school is having more enrolees every year. When the school year comes; the Students of the Palawan National in Senior High School Students are addicted on the social media like Playing Computer Games, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Tumbler, Tiktok, watching online even the class. Students must really know the importance of social media to be able to fulfil their own will. Technology nowadays is becoming more and more high tech. And it’s improves day by day for us to use in our convenience.  This technological evolution affects us but most are the “M illennials ” . In research we will focus on the Senior High School Students of Palawan National School ages from 17-19 years old. For us to get more specific answer and accurate answer form our said research . The definition of social media is “the relationship’s that the exist between networks of people” . However, students spend most of their time using social media like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc..., then doing their own homework. People use social media to connect to other people who are far from them. Because of the evolution of social media, it’s much easier and convenient to use than before. Social media can be also use to express your feeling towards someone or something. People are fascinated how they call tell their opinions using social media, usually for politics, education, or even entertainment. And social media really affects the student most,  because they are usually the one using. The driving factors for adoption of social media are the progressively ubiquitous access, convenience, functionality, and flexibility of social technologies (Brown, 2010; Schroeder, Minorca and Schneider, 2010). These factors have made the adoption of social media very easy 3 and have tremendously improved mankind ’s life by exposing him to different ways of creating and sharing information. An additional benefit of social technologies provided on the internet is that they are frequently free or require marginal investment, thereby eliminating a potential barrier to adoption (Brown, 2010). As we know, nothing interesting is ever completely one-sided, so it is for social media as it comes with  both positive and negative effects. There is a correlation between social media usage and academic performance of students in universities. There have been various views and opinions which recognize four major advantages of social media use in higher education. These include; enhancing relationship, improving learning motivation, offering personalized course material, and develo  ping collaborative abilities (Wheeler, Yeoman’s and Wheeler,2008; Rifkin, Long Necker, Leach and Ortia,2009). Also, Riccardo et al (2007), argued that students are socially connected with one another and therefore share their daily learning experiences and do conversation on various topics through social media whereas Kuppuswamy and Shankar (2010), reviewed that social network  websites grab students’ attention and then diverts it towards no educational and inappropriate actions including useless chatting. Research has proved the heavy presence of social media usage among students. Wiley and Sisson (2006), for instance argue that previous studies have found that more than 90% percent of tertiary school students use social networks. It is also found out that, students use social networking sites (SNSs) approximately thirty (30) minutes throughout the day as part of their daily routine life (Nicole, Charles, and Cliff, 2007).This shows the level at which students are patronizing these sites and this may bring along both positive and negative effects on students as far as their academic performance is concerned. According to Rachel Heike Many parents worry about how exposure to technology might affect toddlers developmentally. We know our preschoolers are picking up new social and cognitive skills at a stunning pace, and we don’t want hours spent glued to an iPad to impede that. But adolescence is an equally important period of rapid development, and too few of us are paying attention to how our teenagers’ use of technology  —  much more intense and intimate than a 3-year- old playing with dad’s iPhone—  is affecting them. In fact, experts worry that the social media and text messages that have become so integral to teenage life are promoting anxiety and lowering self-esteem. Statement of the problem 1.   Does use of social media has any negative impact on student’s academic performance?  2.   Does use of social media has any positive impact on student’s academic performance?  3.   How do social media affect the student’s academic  performance? 4.   Is there any difference in academic performance on a particular course between students who use social media and those who don’t?   Significance of the study Thi s  study is significant to the teachers, parents and students. This study will help the teachers of the school to know influence that social media has on their students, so as to assist them to enlighten and create awareness to the students on the possible influence it has on them. The study is of significant to parents in the sense that they will know the possible effects these social media usage has on their children, so as to serve as watch  –  dog to their children on the usage of the social networking site. The study will enable the students of the senior high level so that they will be aware that, apart from social  benefits of this social networking sites, using the sites more than necessary will possible dangers to their health.

There are numerous research studies that analyse this topic under and they are indeed relevant since most of the innovative features offered by Facebook platform in collaboration with other social medium forums have been boosted especially with introduction of revolutionary features and platform. The majority of the studies chosen been  published in the past four five years. According to the comprehensive literature review by Ellison (2007), the role of Facebook in higher education is attributed to the creation of virtue classes. The review has analysed massive research database around the world to make this review comprehensive in its coverage for almost all aspects of an endeavour to give an explanation for the diverse roles of Facebook in higher education classes Related Literature A.   Local Literature According to Rejie D. Astodello (December 11, 2016) Tabuk City, Kalinga - People all over the world have been enjoying the benefits of using technology nowadays. In the past, communicating and free sharing of thought between people are restricted by long distance, race, and even religion. But now these barriers can no longer stop the flow of information and knowledge because now the new world of social networking allows free sharing of thoughts through online social networking sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and the like. Since students are highly motivated to using social media sites the majority of them use these to satisfy their social needs more than their academic needs. They have the freedom to do whatever they want  –   they can upload or download data, they can make new friends and comment on other people’s li ves, and they can even create other online identities the real world does not allow. It has been observed too that the majority of the students nowadays, particularly those in the secondary level, spend most of their time chatting with their acquaintances, playing online games, and watching videos instead of reading their lessons, making their assignments, and other academic requirements. The main reason is when they work or search their materials online they get attracted to social networking sites to kill boredom during study time, diverting their attention from their work. The darker side of this that has gained the attention of many parents is that some students aregetting lazier and are no longer interested in going to school. This is probably due to being extensively indulged to get global access and therefore leading them to perform less academically.
