Though social media is an important "global communication and entertainment tool" in modern society, it's no secret that it is time-consuming. In fact, research studies have found that students spend an average of 2 to 4 hours on online social media platforms. Time management represents a challenge for most online learners. To be successful in an online learning environment, students must successfully maneuver between work, house, family, and college endeavors. And this requires not only dedication but also, a good schedule. Therefore, if you are of those who enjoy browsing through family and friends' profiles, watching social media videos or merely scrolling down on the newsfeed, you might benefit from cutting back on the time you spend connected. If you are not up for taking a social media break and temporary closing your accounts. Then, you might benefit and gain some extra time by simply adding social media to your schedule and adhering to the time you grant for it.
