Anjali Shokeen | Avni Jain [2]

Abstract: Social Networking sites have the most popular medium for the exchange of information and knowledge across the globe. There has been a flood of Social Networking Sites in the last five years. The younger generation makes most of the use of social media than any other demographic. Students especially use such medium to stay in touch with old friends and also to meet new ones. Adolescents have been the first ones to embrace social media platforms and have been mainly responsible for the popularity of such platforms. The impact that social media can have on adolescents is very critical and poses important questions for educationists. The exponential increase in mobile ownership in the last few years has further increased the number of social media avenues and the usage of social media by adolescents. With the increasing number of cases of cyber bullying, clique formation etc. , the researcher believes this study is relevant to the current times and will attempt to answer questions which are critical to understanding the attitude of adolescents along with their parents and teachers towards Social Networking Sites. The research has been conducted on Adolescents of 16 years of age and their Parents and Teachers respectively with a view to know their Attitude towards Social Networking Sites. The study was conducted on 100 Adolescents, 30 Teachers and Parents through Likert scale and Questionnaire.
