The "dependent variable" represents the output or effect, or is tested to see if it is the effect. The "independent variables" represent the inputs or causes, or are tested to see if they are the cause. In a statistics experiment, the dependent variable is the event studied and expected to change whenever the independent variable is altered.The paradigm above shows the influence of social networking sites to the interpersonal relationship of students. There are two possible types of interpersonal relationship that students tend to develop. These are the following: Stronger interpersonal relationship of students with their friends, teachers, and parents. This happens if a student or a person knows well how to use a social networking site. Students are always updated with the status of their close friends, teachers, or even their parents that are added in their friends list in the social networking sites that they are using. It will also be easier for the user to know when will be the birthday of his/her friends and so he/she can greet them easily, even if they are apart and also, with less time and effort. Students, aside from developing a stronger interpersonal relationship, in contrast, tend to develop a weaker interpersonal relationship with their friends, teachers and parents. This is due to too much dependency of students to the internet and computer as a medium of communication with their friends, teachers, and parents. Sometimes, students can only tell what they want to other people whenever they are chatting or when they post comments on the wall of a person’s account or profile. If they do this over and over again, this develops into a habit and be used to it until the time comes that they just depend on the internet and computer on telling what they want. Through this, a person can’t express his emotions that results to an unhealthy relationship with other people. There are also times that social networking sites don’t have any effect on the interpersonal relationship of a student or a person with other people. This is why researchers identified the influence of social networking sites to the students of John Paul II College.

Social Networking SitesThe Different faces of Social Networking Sites(Beccai, Dec 2010) A social networking site is a form of social network servicecreated to encourage social relations among people with the useof the World Wide Web. It was created to be able to connect withfriends easily and more comfortably, since we are now in ageneration where internet is prevalent. We have been using thesesites as it is part of our social norm.
Social Networking SitesLack of Anonymity You are putting out information about your name,location, age, gender, and many other types of information thatyou may not want to let others know. Most people would say becareful, but no one can be certain at any given time. As long aspeople can know who you exactly are, then some can find ways todo you in.
Interpersonal RelationshipImproving Interpersonal Relationships(www.selfgrowth.com) When you come to the realization that interpersonalrelationships are based on needs then the steps following become simpleand effective. To understand what a relationship is, how to bring oneabout, how to enhance one, and why relationships are diminished andlost, one must understand the power of a person’s needs. The mostimportant things in the world, to us, are the things we believe that weneed. The needs affect opinions, attitudes, and viewpoints. Generallywe’re more aware of unfulfilled needs than the ones that areconsistently met. Fundamental life needs in particular are so commonlyaccepted that we usually overlook them. No one is aware of the airbreathed, the ground walked on, the water drunk, and yet these arethe needs we miss most when gone. The key to good interpersonalrelationships is simple once you understand the role that needs play inmaking a relationship weak, moderate, average, or strong.
Interpersonal RelationshipProblems arising out of interpersonal relationship(http://www.homeopathsaini.com) Interpersonal relationships are a kind of give and take andunderstanding each other. Whenever, any difference of opinionsurfaces between two individuals or among a group of people itaffects the thought process of the person. Mind being the supercomputer of the human body works nonstop but throwing outsignals constantly in the form of speech, emotions and gestures.Problems in interpersonal relationships give rise to feelings ofbitterness, anger, hate and rancour. All these kind of negativeemotions imbalances the thought process and bodily reactions ofthe person at the same time. Wrong or inappropriate decisionmaking forms a part of the disturbed mind which further givesrise to so many unending chain reactions in the human mind theirby spoiling the whole conducive atmosphere.
Theoretical and Framework Jean Piaget’s: Theory of Cognitive Development Social Networks, as a form of social constructivism, have thepotential to foster the interaction through which knowledge andmeaning is constructed. Jean Piaget, the Gestalt philosopher inthe Theory of Cognitive Development has informed educationaltheory for decades. Social interaction, according to Piaget, is oneof the most important social tools by which students learn. SocialNetworks are a virtual extension of that essential socialinteraction. Social Networking and online learning communitiesare keeping the teachers and students connected in and out of theclassroom. Social Networks also allow for the exchange ofinformation and ideas do not only within the confines of aclassroom, but across schools, districts, states and the world.

Conclusion This research poses both opportunities and challenges for students and their perspective department. Because students are using channels like Facebook more intensely, they may not be engaging with the “real world” to the extent that they might have in the past. For students’ affairs, this could mean a change in tactics for engaging with their students, placing additional emphasis on outreach through social media channels to engage with their students. Institutions and department should seek to engage and connect through these channels rather than simply spouting information. If there is no two-way communication occurring, chances are that information is falling on deaf ears of students. With institutions seeking to cut cost and be more efficient than ever while maintaining effectiveness, using social media as a tool for engagement, education and development might prove to be one of the solutions to this difficult task. Fortunately, social media appears to be where the students are, institution simply need to plug in and take advantage of all of the possibilities availed to them through this ever-evolving channels of communication.
