Dr. Preeti Singh.

Abstract
Social network use has expanded exponentially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. For a variety of reasons, people have extended the usage of social media, ranging from socializing, entertainment, networking, online education, web meetings, work from home, health development and so on. The goal of this research is to understand how people in India, particularly students and professionals, have used social media and how it has influenced them.
A total of 353 respondents from different areas of the world were contacted and analyzed using SPSS 21.0 using purposeful sampling methods. In order to observe the role of use of social media, including demographic variables, trends of use, purpose of use and its recorded results, a 25-item tool was used to collect responses on the different aspects of use of social media during the pandemic era. This survey of respondents showed that there has been an uptick in the use of social media following the COVD-19 pandemic crisis! Nearly 42.5 percent of respondents trusted social media on National News Channels and Government Agency websites for relevant news, although (37.7 percent) did not concentrate on the same. Pearson Chi-square statistics found a correlation between age and average daily instagram usage (95 % CI and P = 0.000*). Thanks to the sudden, varied and manipulative use of social media, there have been many obstacles faced by the respondents. The main observation that has been noted is that there is a positive effect on the use of social media since the pandemic, and that social media has also helped people in many respects. The findings provide insight on the benefits and dangers involved with the use of social media and provide new guidelines for possible research. This study shows how to do new research to enable the effective use of social media

Key words: COVID-19, Pandemic, Social Media Proliferation, Work from Home, Social Distancing.
