Abstract
Social media drastically altered our way of living. Social media is a beneficial instrument for us in the 21st century and could allow us to better our lives and making more convenient. However, we must be mindful of how we utilize them. Social media will benefit us if we can utilize it responsibly. With a quantitative approach, a descriptive study was conducted in Baba Educational Society Institute of Paramedical College of Nursing, Lucknow, U.P. Three hundred (300) nursing students were selected using a convenient sampling technique. The interview was conducted to assess the nursing student’s use and constraint of social media. Then, the data were analyzed using statistical methods and the result was interpreted. This study's results showed that 248 (82.7%) students were using social media for academic purposes and 52 (17.3%) were not used for academic purposes. Two hundred and eighteen (72.7%) students used social media to socialize, but 82 (27.3%) students were not. Most of the students (184[61.3%]) were using social for entertainment, and 116 (38.7%) students were not considering social media as an entertainment medium. A large number of students, 243 (81%), were getting information from social media; at the same time, 57 (19%) students were not getting information from social media. Regarding the constraint of social media, 183 (61%) students faced difficulties with social media, while 117 (39 %) were not. This result shows that social media platforms benefit nursing students' academic activities. At the same time, it can also deteriorate their academic activities if not used with precautions.
