academic performance for students. The researchers distributed a questionnaire through the internet to 200
undergraduate students at the University of Diyala concerning their SM uses as an educational tool, trying to
investigate is it effectible in improving education or not. Many resources used to enhance educational
performance for universities; however, the SM has become a significant tool due to its communication abilities
and efficiencies that reduces studentís efforts and improving achievements at colleges. The study points out that
many students are using SM as a helping tool for understanding some difficult subjects with their courses
creating groups to share information and knowledge between them. The respondents, who are using SM as
educational tools mention the positive impact on their performance. The results reveal that there is a relationship
between SM and academic performance; this is predictable in their overall grade average.
