CHAPTER 1
THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
Introduction
Facebook has affect much of our lives. Some say its for the better while some
oppose it. It is a website that is easy to use that connects people together in our
society. Through the internet, people are able to share info, communicate, and
socialize with one another. People who use Facebook are able to share ideas. Some
people say that Facebook takes too much time when students should be studying.
Others say that they need Facebook to share files and documents that are
necessary for their work. Face book (www.nais.orgf/artiles/pages/the impact of
Facebook on our students.aspx) was created by mark zuckleburgg. This website was
inspired by Myspace in order to bring people together as a community. Facebook is
also a website where people have freedom of speech. They can post pictures videos
and status that are expressive towards their emotions.
We are not designed to multi-task well. When we are studying for an exam and
using facebook at same time, by taking our concentration away from one activity it
may lower our ability to perform and unable to work well on a simultaneous basis.
The previous study found that students GPAs showed a 0.12 decrease for every 93
minutes above the average 106 minutes of daily facebook use spent on the social
networking site.
The main purpose of this paper is to suggest some ways of minimizing the bad
impacts of Facebook to students and to show you the negative effects of this social
networking sties on students behavior and performance. This research is also
focused on finding ways to enhance students motivation and improve their
achievements. It is also for the main reason to help others realize the dangers and
risks of Facebook as well as its usefulness and benefits in our daily lives.
Statement of the problem
1. What is facebook?
2. What is the result of students using facebook?
3. What is the comparison of the performance of students who use facebook
with those who do not?
4. How can teachers encourage students to focus more on learning?
Hypotheses
This study will explain the effect of students using facebook on their studies. We
hypothesized that even though there are social advantages to facebook there are
many detrimental effects on their learning. Facebook habit can be detrimental to
ones grades or academic performance.
