College students would rather leave school with massive debt but a lower paying job if it meant they could use social media services while at work. That’s the main focus of a new study conducted by the team at OnlineCollegeCourses.com.
The study found that 6% of students “couldn’t live without” social media access at work while 31% said they could live without that access but would struggle throughout the day.
While we are fanatically inclined to everything internet base we can’t agree with the 1 in 3 students who listed social media access to be just as important as air, food, shelter, and water.
The most shocking part of the study found that 29% of students would be willing to take a lower paying job if full social media access was given to them. Those same respondents go on to admit that social media would distract them from work at least 3 times per hour.
27% of respondents said they would seek higher paying jobs and then find ways to access Facebook, Twitter and social media platforms even if not allowed by their employer.
