Impact of social media in the field of education
K.Chitra,  Ms. J. Magelin Mary,  Ms.Y.Arockia Suganthi
Social media are becoming omnipresent and need to be managed like all other media employ towards their goals. However, social media are fundamentally different from any other traditional media because of their social network structure and democratic nature. These differences require a distinct measurement approach as a prerequisite for their proper analysis and ensuing management. Face book has over 500 million users, while Twitter has over 200 million. That’s not even counting blogs or YouTube video. There’s no doubt that students are actively engaged in social media. This is a very big challenge for the teachers and parents to counteract with these activities.
Keywords- Social Media, social roles, online communities, responsibilities
