It therefore plays an important role in human communication and social interaction. Communication technology is the hope of the future; they must be used with care and caution.

Most parents do not know, and they do not know at all about the effects of the media. They have almost no idea what their children are watching. Parents need to understand that the media can influence everything they care about the health and development of their children: school performance, learning disabilities, sex, drugs, aggressive behavior.

Cyberbullying can have a variety of negative effects on the Internet addict, failure to fulfill work and school responsibilities, social relationships, breach of rules or school rules as a result of social networking. As social media sites continue to grow in popularity, it is our idea that technology is part of vita l in today’s part of student success. We measure the impact of social interaction on educational achievement and the consequences of student behavior in school. Essentially, we investigate how the fragmentation of the existing social network operates during the transition from primary to secondary school affects student academic progress and school and social satisfaction.
