A lot of students love to spend time with social networking sites. Because, social network provides them the freedom to do whatever they want. They can upload whatever they want. They can talk to any other persons. This is the why they can’t concentrate in their studies. Social networking sites are affecting the students largely.
The excessive use of these sites, is affecting their mental as well as physical health. Students don’t take their meals on time and don’t take proper rest. The parents should check their children when they use the internet for wasting their valuable time. They should be on guard about its usage. The thing to remember is that a student’s life is about studying, learning, and gaining variety of knowledge. They should be good person. But they are getting involved in social media.
