This study aims to examine the influence of social media on students of tertiary institutions. Social media has become an integral part of modern-day life, and its impact on education has been the subject of much debate. The study utilized a mixed-methods approach to collect data from students in different faculties using a questionnaire survey and semi-structured interviews. The results of the study show that social media has both positive and negative effects on students'' academic performance and their social life. On the positive side, social media has improved communication and information sharing among students, enhanced collaboration and facilitated self-learning. On the negative side, social media has led to reduced attention span, addiction, and cyberbullying.
