5 Strong Reasons to Be Apart of Social Media Networks During Education

Reason 1: Social Networks Can Affect Mental Health

Many psychologists have long warned that using social networks can affect mental health and affect self-esteem. Social networks offer unlimited opportunities to compare themselves with others. It is very easy to get depressed and feel dissatisfied with your life when you see photos of friends from a vacation at sea, an Instagram demonstration of a new car (a country house, a cool gadget), a selfie from the gym, or just a variety of other people's leisure.

Reason 2: Doing Crazy Things to Get “Likes” of Peers

People who are dependent on social networks embellish their lives through social networks, doing crazy things for the sake of likes. For them, the approval of subscribers becomes an essential component of their lives.

The dependence on “likes” is so strong that students do something just to post information about it on a social network. Students only become aware of themselves through the feedback of their college peers. But that makes no sense. This is a real attention deficit disorder and you need to fight it. In anticipation of a positive assessment, you allow others to control your emotions and feelings.

Reason 3: Wasting Hours of Time in Vain

Companies around the world are losing millions of dollars due to the fact that their employees spend hours on social networks. Fighting this is almost useless. Spending time on social networks at work became a bad habit for most students. Just think – you spent much effort to enter the college, or maybe you even pay for your education, and what do you invest your time in? After graduation, you’ll be able to post photos on Instagram only because you have been present at university lectures only physically. Don’t miss an opportunity to learn new things keeping in mind the goal to get a degree and become an expert in the chosen sphere. Ask yourself - am I effective? What is the final goal of getting an education? Set several goals for the whole working day and you won’t have time to spend time on the social network.

Reason 4: A Lot of Unverified Information

Publications very often quote unverified information. You spend tons of time listening to a sort of news channel that steals other people's pseudo-news that receive thousands of posts, and lively discussion on the network.

One of the most famous examples of lies: Have you heard a tale that Coca-Cola would be green if it had not been tinted. After this, Coca-Cola representatives even had to write a refutation of this information on the official website. So, you’re recommended to clean up many of the groups and subscribe to the official channels of the companies which activity you are interested in. Filter or check the information received. Once you can be assigned to write a research paper and fail if using the facts from social media networks because it isn’t the most reliable source of information. Why take risks and trust everything you read there?

Reason 5: Problems in Relationships with Peers

Do you have friends whose dependence on social networks is so strong that even during a meeting in a bar or restaurant they flip through the news? Of course, the quality of such communication and the pleasure of it aren’t that good. Many young people are all afraid of loneliness, afraid to be left alone with their thoughts, constantly turn on the music (or TV) in the background, and at every opportunity, check the page on the social network. Filling the void of waiting in line by scrolling through the "news" feed has become a habit of many. The question is: “Is the information received useful? Or are you just disconnecting from real life and losing opportunities to make real friends?”

You’re recommended to quit social media networks while studying in college and replace them with reading something really worthwhile and important for you personally. Choose the directions that you want to study in the near future, find training sites and applications on this topic. Use the pauses that have appeared to good use. You can keep an interesting book in your bag and read it when having free time. Believe it, it’ll be more useful than checking the page on Instagram several times per hour.

Imagine how much new you could learn if you didn’t waste time-consuming useless content on the social network. It's time to clear the head of trash, reduce the list of publics that you are subscribed to, and do really important things. It's not too late to make your life better. Good luck!
