Introduction
Social media has become an important tool for communication these days. Individuals and
organizations both are using social media to enhance their network and communication.
Organizations are using social media platforms like facebook and twitter to interact with their
customers directly and take their feedbacks. Now a day social media has become significantly
popular in educational industry. Many universities are using social media platforms to interact
with their current and potential students. There are many benefits associated with the adoptability
of social media practices. Social media provides a better possibility of support and engagement
with students. Universities and other educational institutes are striving hard to maintain good
communication with the students and it is important to continuously keep up the social media
activities. There are also many other opportunities available for the educational institutes such as
online teaching. Many universities are successfully using these opportunities.

Literature review
Social media means a virtual space where people can interact with each other virtually. Most of
the tools of social media are still new but most the core concept of social networking goes back
to the very early days of the internet.
Now a day social media has changed the way people used to communicate. Almost every person
is a member of any sort of social media (Koshey, 2010). Almost all businesses are very active of
different social Medias to directly interact with their customers. The use of social media is
increasing day by day more people are using this kind of communication to extend their friends
circle and form a network of professionals.
Now these kind of changes are also being made in the educational industry(Light, 2009). Now
Lectures are being delivered in the form of online videos and podcasts and this phenomenon is
very common. Teachers are using several social media platforms such as facebook, twitter and
YouTube to interact with their students. Students are also using such platforms to discuss regular
activities. Now the traditional essays are also being converted in to video pitches from the
students.
The core purpose of such activities is to facilitate the learning process. For this purpose different
countries are taking different initiatives such as in India government is taking initiative to
introduce the tablet technology as a learning tool in the rural population of India.
Social media has totally changed the way we communicated. Social media has made it easy to
interact with people and connect with each other. Now a day many universities re using many
tools for their student for example Singapore Management University is using an online wiki
which helps its students to learn from peer learning and web research. Educational institutes are
looking towards more creative and interactive ways to interact with their students and because of
this reason many educational institutes has adopted social media learning procedures(Jacobi,
1991). According to a research most department which used social media for educational
purposes are humanities and Social sciences.Mainly social media is though to be a tool of young
generation but in educational industry this is not true. Different persons belonging to different

The adoption of social media in educational industry is no history. Teachers are also using different sites which are providing a controlled environment. Most of these innovative techniques are based on the social media. They were also used to reach to the students by sharing any news. 1984). It’s not enough to make an account on a social media platform. First of all the social media account of the school or university should be managed by a professional and by a person who have good knowledge about the institute other wise people will think that it is not authentic(Seelye. Initially when blogs were introduced then educators and library professionals were the first one to adopt them because it can save many complexities and every one was able to share their opinion and views and read others. There should be proper features on the platform so that students could interact easily with the institute. although the use of social media in older faculty is slightly lower as compared to the younger faculty. On social media students can comment and critique on each other assignments and work. Colleges are creating their Facebook pages and using it to market themselves.age groups are using social media. 2003). On web colleges are offering virtual tours in which potential students can watch different videos and pictures of the institution and activities. Students were the first one to adopt this sort of social media. There are several advantages of social media in education industry but there are also some challenges. The first social networking site was composed of bulletin board. A social media site . it is also very important to keep it running on daily basis. Message board and blogging. twitter. LinkedIn. The faculty members are using social media platforms to connect with other professionals and most important tool for this purpose is LinkedIn. So it could be easily said the now a days universities and colleges are finding new ways to communicate with students and faculty and looking for new innovative ways(Odendaal. With the help of social media it has become easy for students to work in team. Social media tools are recently adopted by the education industry. Students can easily ask questions from their teachers on social media and any one can help them. personal profiles and messaging tools. On message board professionals and teachers share their teaching stuff and materials. Colleges are also using social media platforms to target potential students. Facebook is the most used social media tool in the higher education. Twitter is also being used for making announcements and notices for the students. There are different social media platforms being used in the education industry but some main social media platforms are Facebook.

In this area alumni and admission staff are leading they way by properly managing the social media platforms and trying to properly engage with current and potential students. Through this platform university encourages the students and teachers to share the personal and professional opinion of that virtual platform. With the increase traffic of students on such sites the academic professionals and Professors follow students on such sites to try and find new means of communication. 2011). this blog lead to a creative. Now a day with so many platforms like you tube. The strategy which was adopted by Warwick is now being adopted by many higher educational institutes but these institutes are using social media platforms for such purpose. Talking about the adoption of social media. This trend was mostly followed in the higher education sector. Warwick University was the first university in United Kingdom to introduce a blogging platform for whole institute. The most common platform which is being used by the schools and colleges is Facebook pages. Mark Prensky defines this phenomenon as a generational factor. Social media has helped a lot in driving change in the way of communications. students are more likely to be motivated and excited by finding new friends and bonding with new people. students remain ahead of others on the adoption curve. Eventually academic staff caught up on the same pace and these social media platforms has helped them a lot in communicating and engaging with students in a meaningful way. after that Friendster was introduced which extends the implications of such platform and when the Facebook was launched then people were already familiar with such kind of stuff and were ready to do new experiments and make new networks(Yang. lively and thoughtful culture because of this culture a there was a very quick turnover of quality content from the university professionals and students. Twitter. In United States many schools and colleges are using customized school apps to properly manage their social media activities(Tan & Wang. Most students do experimenting on such virtual platform because there is very less risk associated with the. It was introduced in 2004. Schools app is a Facebook application which helps students . This blogging platform had many effects on the university. wikis and blogs social media is being used for many purposes in higher education. Academic staff was slower in adopting these changes but this could be justified with the generation gap. 2010). Facebook.FriendsReunited was used to maintain the existing relationship between the friends and extend their network.

2005). Another opportunity which exist for the educational institutes is the support for flexible or distant learning. Another opportunity which is provided by the use of social media is engagement in teaching and learning. By offering online courses and other events. This way of learning is quite different from the traditional way as it is one way learning and is more challenging and highly rewarded. et al. Students joined these educational institute and they already have established network on the social media platforms. For most of the educational organizations the most important relationship is with their students and social media is a great way and medium to engage and support students(Baliga. This sort of communication works better in a closed space such as on a local network. This sort of processes can help students to take a good responsibility of their own learning and build a good and productive social circle. It is impossible for the staff to monitor such social media platforms all the times but such presence and endorsement can help students a lot. email is the most common and formal way of communication. 2012).. The very first and most common opportunity for educational institute is better student approach and engagement.The most common use of social media in educational institute is to enhance the events and publications. For such students who are studying part time and if it is difficult for them to properly . It is in the favour of universities and other educational institute to use such social media platforms to interact with students but such educational institute must needs to sort out that what tools they are going to use and what tools would be better for the culture of the institute.to connect with their respective institute and also it is like a Facebook within Facebook. On this application students can find all the data which is shared by the educational institute and before even taking admission students can take a go through ever educational institute. For most of the universities and educational institute. educational institute can engage students more efficiently. Social media provides the opportunity for communication and develop professional network between professionals and students. With the help of social media educational institutes can enhance their learning capabilities for example if an university is offering wikis to help out its students then more students will be engaged in the learning environment(Aurigi. Talking about the opportunities of social media in the education industry there are many of them.

If a university or any educational institute want to save itself from any sort of risk associated with the exposure of social media then it is important to make several policies which would tackle all kind of risks and issues associated with it. 2005). It is the responsibility of educational institutes to look after the private information of students and faculty but by registering with social media platforms one has to provide personal information(Berg. Because of social media groups such students can connect with their peers and forms friendships.be a part of educational community the social media can help them a lot(Althaus & Tewksbury. The main issue behind the risks associated with social media is its democratic nature. these guidelines should be nurturing and should highlight good practice. These policies should be stable enough to acknowledge benefits and risks of the social media at the same time(Drucker. With many opportunities different risks are also associated with the adoptability of social media. The best way to do it by creating a social media usage policy or guidance document. In such case it would be better to consider the outcome of these efforts and plan . YouTube and skype are used for the purpose of video conferencing and tutorials. twitter and Facebook are used to keep these students connected with each other. 2007). There should be proper regulations and guidelines. Such kind of restrictions could have a negative impact on university reputation. The bans on social media platforms are not very much effective or encouraged. Blogs. For instance the MSc degree in eLearning at University of Edinburgh is taught through e-learning and it targets students from all over the world. because of social media they can feel a part of community. 2000). such restrictions can push individuals like students and staff members to start some controversial topics which wouldn’t be in the favor of university reputation. this university properly uses social media tools to connect their students with their peers and teachers. There should be some measures from the side of university to properly manage these kind of issues. as any person could post any kind of stuff so of course there will be some risks associated. Because of social media the educational institute gets great exposure and in case of any failure there is a huge possibility of embarrassment is a public place. This document should contain all the guidance related to the usage of social media and all related rules and regulations. Most of the times embedding social media in the culture of educational institute can take a lot of time and efforts. The Open University is also looking towards using different social media tools to interact virtually with their students and enable a community of learners.

Research Approaches The research approach is quantitative in nature. There are a lot of privacy risks associated with such kind CHAPTER # 3 Methodology Research Philosophy The research focuses on role of social media in education industry. Quantitative data depends upon figures which reflect the impact of social media in education industry. The main purpose is to develop a strategy to conduct the research. By this activity university would become the shortfalls and problems of such system. It is important for the educational institute to first test run a platform with peers or colleagues before opining it for all students. This report also includes interpretive framework which is used to interpret the data collected through online research. Both qualitative and quantitative data has to be considered while undergoing a research.accordingly. For research purposes different kind of literature could also be a big concern and this example is used to make this research understandable for the reader. After the analysis of number of environmental factors different recommendations will be listed. These blogs have become a main platform for open discussions and to share innovative ideas. secondly the research do involve the human behavior in terms of opinions that is . Non-experimental approach is suitable as the distortion in policies with regard to gender can’t be done to study. Research Design This study reflects the role of social media in education industry and the consideration of proper research and analysis in order to erode misconceptions with social media. Now a days blogs have become one main tool for research and teaching purpose.

as the . The questionnaire which will be used will consist of mostly closed natured questions. For the quantitative section. as the target market exists a far from the area of access. especially when the medium of getting response is telephonic or internet. With that the plan is to collect the primary data from the target market to better know the trends in the market. as people at the large scale do not prefer to answer open ended question. Data Collection Methods-Primary and Secondary Secondary data: Secondary data is the data that has been gathered in the past for some other research purpose. so it will help in the distributed learning environment. The surveys will be online. and it is actually the already available information on different mediums for the research topic Secondary data will be collected on the bases of validity for the research. The reasoning for choosing quantitative study is short amount of time to complete the project and another reason is the objectivity of the nature of topic. survey questionnaires will be used (specifically from the target market to know the trends). which will be used further for devising recommendations. the articles that have been published in the journals and the books which have been written by the experts of the subject of international business. which is used in order to meet the research objectives. for example. Research Strategies The research strategy is to use helpful materials for the research that has been collected for the other purposes in past. it will help us to collect relevant information.not subject to experimental research. while the methods for selected strategy have already been discussed in the section of “research methods”. the interpretation has played an important role to guide the decision maker in terms of describing pros and cons of different strategies to erode misconceptions regarding social media in education industry. Research Methods Quantitative method design will be used for this study. Lastly.

Different books have been studied which have been written by the experienced writers in the particular field. and it is actually the first hand information.main point is to make sure that the data is going to help in our research or not. It has been make sure that the research is reliable and valid by the use of different techniques. Research Reliability and Validity The research has been designed in a way that it minimizes the chances of fakeness. Primary data: Primary data is the data that is gathered for the specific purpose. The data has been analyzed by looking on to the past trends. articles published in journals. we will be using different software. The main focus will be on Microsoft excel that will enable us to have a view of overall picture in form of snapshot. The articles which have been mentioned in the research are from the published sources. Questionnaire will be conducted from general public and most probably students. though these are the studies which have been completed in the past but those are useful even to know about the trends and to make the future predictions. Survey will be conducted from general public including students of different universities and colleges. The sample size will be 10 respondents for survey. For the primary data collection purposes discussed earlier. websites of different authorities and publication bodies. questionnaire will be used. the reason for selection is the constraints in terms of time and less accessibility to the target market. the books are also one of the main source for the collection of the secondary data. Pictorial representation will be given importance as by using this we will be able to interpret data in different ways. as there are always standards for publishing an article in a journal or even on a website of some regulatory body. the major is the availability of target market in far areas and with that cost factor is also there as it is one of the cheapest of all to have in data collection methodologies. different mediums will be used. Sampling Method Chosen-Sample Size The judgmental sampling has been done to gather data from the sample. as. Data Analysis For the purpose of data analysis. and also by .

as it was not easy to collect data from the respondents living far away from each other. for that purpose. journals. As. But in order to overcome that limitation. the research has been based on the mediums which have been easily available as well as cost-effective. there were also limitations due to shortage of time as well as less amount available for the research. we have tried to minimize our limitations for the research which were at times causing hindrance.gathering information from the target market. Similarly. Limitations faced in research Followings re some of the limitations which have been faced during the research:  The data collection has been the question mark for the research. Data representation will also be the done by the use of different graphs and charts that will enable us to interpret data correctly. the accuracy of the research gets better with the increase in time period available to conduct the research and if 100% accuracy is required then it might take lot of time both in terms of data collection as well as data analysis.  In addition to the above mentioned issues. also the authentic publications have been used in order to get insights from the work of reputed authors. So by the use of different techniques. which ensured the data collection from far areas which couldn’t be possible by “in person” research. as there are always questions raised on the authenticity of the data collected through different mediums. online mediums have been used. it had been made sure that different mediums are used to collect the same information. . and other publication bodies.  One of the other limitation in conducting research was the reliability issue. whose work is being accepted by different magazines. talking about the cost factor.

As the results reflect that more people use social media on mobile devices and tablets as compared to the fixed computer. . as its usage is increasing day by day and students tend to use social media more on portable devise. as well as usage of vocabulary. but the benefits can be taken by the use of appropriate strategies from different stakeholders. they can have polls on social media and act as the moderator in order to get the discussion on the specific topic. punctuation. but also it provides the platform for students and the educational staff to discuss educational matters. But there is a need to have the regular check on content of social media as one comment can make it difficult for the institute or the moderator to defend because the direct responses will keep on coming in. and educational institute. While to maximize the benefits of social media. No doubt there are pros and cons for the usage of social media so at the same time there is the need to take benefits from the usage and minimize the negative impacts by the usage of effective strategies. which means that by uploading the helping material of studies on social media. teachers can make the content accessible to student easily. tend to spare less time for reality and they also suffer from physical as well as mental diseases. similar is the case with social media. Most of the people. even the means to access social media is tending to be more portable. as students tend to write short phrases rather than full sentences which is having negative impacts on their usage of grammar. Summing up. it can be said that the excess in usage or glut of anything do not produce favorable results. teachers. The helping material ca be uploaded on social media. as it is not only the medium of marketing of the educational institution. who use social media more. Numbers of students are getting weaker in language due to excessive use of social media. While on the other side of the picture. it is important to educate students about the importance of information and communication technology in education as well as grooming.CONCLUSION Crux of the findings It has been found in the research that the usage of social media is increasing day by day. students. So the usage of social media is beneficial as well as unhealthy for the education industry. the increase usage is also damaging the performance of the students which is affecting their grades. Social media has direct impact on education industry. like. The teachers can use social media as a platform of communication with the students.
