The college experience enhanced (or hampered) by social media

College Social Media

When Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, he wanted to make a closed network for the elite at Harvard. Over time, he realized that by opening it up, he would be able to build something that cataloged the college experience for everyone. Eventually, it expanded outside of college but the roots were embedded in the entire college experience.

A case could be made that today, as the vast majority of college students are on social networks when they enter or join them shortly after getting to college, social media is as big of a part of the college experience as parties have always been. Is this a good thing? Is the experience of college students enhanced or hampered by social media?

Take a look at these stats before deciding.
