Whoever said Social Media can’t do your studies any good? Well they couldn’t be more wrong! Here are stats by Masters In Education.Org to back you up. 1,127 students were made to take part in a study to see the correlation between their grades and their social media usage.
As per this study, students who discussed on social media sites were seen to form their own study group without being instructed to do so!

Social media sites have seen a 38% hike in their usage in comparison with last year and for good!
