Abstract: This paper examines access to various activities student do with their GSM (social network and browsing) and its effects on students academic performance in secondary schools in Nigeria. The sample schools were selected in each geopolitical zone (total of six schools sampled) in Nigeria using simple random sampling. A total of one hundred and twenty (120) questionnaires were administered to the respondents. One hundred and six (106) questionnaires were returned. Two hypotheses: The more the time you spend on social networks the lower you grade and the more time you spend browsing the better your academic performance were formulated and tested using chi-squared test statistics. In all the hypotheses, it was observed that there is no enough evidence to show that there is a relationship between students spending time on social network/ browsing to betterment of grades in terms of academic performance.
