Consequently, they will have an impact on both the personal and academic lives of students. This study aims to determine the influence of social media on the academic performance and well-being of students. The survey method was utilized to gather the relevant information for the investigation. A total of 324 students were chosen as the sample. A random sampling strategy was utilised to choose the sample. Afterwards, the data was analyzed using Statistical Technique. The findings indicated that the majority of students in the society expressed a preference for utilising social media in a constructive manner for their academic pursuits, rather than engaging in its misuse.
