  2. 2. The  New  York  Times  reports  that  25%  of  millennials  living  on  their  own  don’t  have  a  cable     subscrip.on  and  opt  instead  to  use  streaming  services,  or  sites  like  YouTube.  While  tradi.onal     Media  consump.on  is  down,  nearly  100%  of  college  students  use  some  form  of  social  media.    
  3. 3. College  campuses  are  using  social  media  as  well,  UMass  Dartmouth  es.mates    97%  of  colleges  use  some  form  of  social  media  
  4. 4. Their  research  finds  that  most     college  campuses  u.lize  both  an   online  presence  as  well  as  an  on     campus  physical  presence  to     communicate  informa.on  to   students  about  events,  and     various  other  announcements.  
  5. 5. As  colleges  begin  to  use  social  media   more,  many  ins.tu.ons  like  DU,  and  Johns   Hopkins,  run  various  social  media  pages.   For  instance  the  DU  study  abroad   Facebook  page,  and  Divest  DU.  
  6. 6. Facebook  in  par.cular  has  a  huge  impact  on  the  lives  of  college  students   88%  of  college  age  Americans  get  some  por.on  of  their  news  from     Facebook,  and  most  check  the  website  daily  
  7. 7. Heavy  social  media  use  can  have  consequences  on  a   persons  psyche,  with  some  Heavy   users  feeling  “leX  out”  as  they   struggle  to  live  the  lives  they  see   online  
  8. 8. As  of  September  2014,  71%  of  “online  adults”  use  Facebook,  23%  use  Twier,     26%  use  Instagram,  28%  use  Pinterest,  28%  use  LinkedIn  
  9. 9. Professor  Ethan  Kross  from  the     university  of  Michigan  ran  a  study  that     found  heavy  Facebook  usage  nega.vely   impacted  par.cipants  sense  of     self-­‐worth.  A  2010  study  from  Carnegie     Mellon  university  found  that  passive   consump.on  nega.vely  affected  a     persons  sense  of  self,  but  direct     interac.on  in  the  form  of  comments  or     messages  actually  improved  par.cipants     self  esteem.  
  10. 10. Some  schools,  and  professors,  like  University  of  Texas  professor  Cedric  May  are  finding  it  difficult   to  reach  students  over  email  And  are  turning  instead  to  forms  of  communica.on  like   social  media,  to  reach  students.  This  comes  with  other  issues  however  and  schools  are  having  to   create  technology  help  centers  to  facilitate  student  access  to  per.nent     informa.on.  In  addi.on  some  students  report  increased  levels  of  stress   when  they  feel  in  constant  contact  with  their  school  over  social  media  
  11. 11. Technology  companies,  and  online  social  plaforms  find  it  difficult  to  break  into  the  millennial,   and  college  student  market.  To  facilitate  this  some  technology  companies  like  apple  have  created   on  campus  authorized  retail  stores  to  sell  product.  In  addi.on,  to  crack  this  market,  Online  social     plaforms  like  Facebook  are  buying  up  smaller  up-­‐and-­‐coming  social  media  plaforms  like     Instagram  to  diversify  their  market  share.  
  12. 12. In  2005  Pew  found  that  only  7%  of  adults   were  using  social  media,  in  2015  that     number  jumped  to  65%.  This  is  in  part  due   the  rise  of  smartphones,  64%  of  Americans   now  own  a  smartphone,  and  74%  of  those     owners  use  a  phone  for  social  media.  
  13. 13. With  social  media  not  going  away  soon,  researchers     say  It  is  important  to  learn  to  balance  .me  spent  online  with     real  world  social  engagement.  In  addi.on  most  recommend   that  social  media  users  do  their  best  not  to  compare  their     lives,  to  the  lives  of  others  they  see  online.  For  more   informa.on  on  how  social  media  affects  the  brain  check  out   the  American  Psychological  Associa.on
