Social media and students’ achievement: the role of culture and personality

Publication: Research - peer-reviewArticle in proceedings

  • University of Arkansas
This study analyzes the impact of students’ immersion in social networking on their academic performance in Sweden and Tunisia. Results from a sample of 400 students indicate that extraverted and conscious students experience different effects. Exceedingly cognitively absorbed, extraverted Swedish and conscious Tunisian students tend to underperform on their studies.
