As a result of these, it is recommended that the students need to be trained on better usage of the social media so as to minimize time wastage on chatting and other irrelevant engagements that are not of major importance on their lives, all the stakeholders and especially Communication Commission of Nigeria and network providers' needs to come up with means of filtering information that reaches the students through social media platforms. This will help minimize exposing them to pornographic and other unwarranted materials, parents and security agencies should monitor activities of the students on social media in order to protect them from sex pest and paedophiles, In order to communicate effectively to the students and government agencies should adopt social media as one of their means of communication, to avoid having a generation that does not have face to face communication skills and also all the stakeholders should consider organizing social events that the students will use to interact and mingle with each other physically the findings of this study should be used in policy formulation at levels of learning that the students are inclusive such as high schools and universities and in government agents that deal with the students.
