technology exposes mankind to a better way of doing things. Social networking sites include:
Twitter, Yahoo Messenger, Facebook Messenger, Blackberry Messenger (BBM), Whatsapp
messenger, 2go messenger, Skype, Google talk, Google Messenger, iPhone and Androids.

Social Media, particularly amongst students, all over the world has engendered researches on
the impact of Social Media on students’ educational outcome. This research examines the
