Can social media help you improve your grades?

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 actively promotes active learning by helping students relate course material to their own experiences within the classroom and beyond.  Heavy social media users who spent more than 61 minutes on social media sites were found to achieve higher grades of A’s and B’s, in comparison with the light social media users. 
Let’s have a deeper look at the kind of use that students have for social media. Needless to say, socializing seemed to be the biggest cause for use, followed by entertainment and then educational purposes. Social media sites have seen a 38% hike in their usage in comparison with last year and for good! 
Here are some more stats for you social media users!
