Even if they study, they are always distracted by the social media. Thus, they cannot concentrate and study properly. As a result of this, students who keep using the social media are more likely to have lower grades.
Secondly, social networking sites entice people to waste their time. For instance, they include some games which require people to play them every day or their progress is lost. Since it is not a material lost, it does not mean anything. Nevertheless, the competitive atmosphere of leaderboards make people play to show that they are better than their friends.

Therefore, people can make new friends who like the same things as they do. For example, if someone is interested in boxing, they can use social networks to make a new friend who also likes boxing.
