The technique adopted to select the sample was convenient sampling and the sample size was 100. The data collected was analyzed with the help of regression. 48% of the variance regarding the academic performance is accounted for by the statements of social media according to the findings of the study. There is a significant connection among social media and academic performance, as the result explains.
