Higher education institutions have a great fear that student academic performance might affect adversely because students are paying more attention towards social media sites. This study tries to identify the impact of social media on technology students in Assosa University.  On the study 100 (one hundred) technology students were participated for interview and filling questionnaires, after collecting the necessary data, analysis and interpretation was also done. The social networking websites are continuously distracting students from their educational studies. The main focus of student should be on education but unfortunately today’s students are emphasizing on social media sites which can be a complete wastage of time. Social networks were only an online communication between users. However, it has become an addiction for students, young and even adults.
