Introduction: The wide acceptance of social networking students has provided a unique opportunity to track the use of this medium for their academic performance. Therefore, the present study was conducted to investigate the relationship between the use of social networks and academic performance in students of Kurdistan University of Medical Sciences
Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 270 students of Kurdistan University of Medical Sciences in the academic year of 1996-96 were studied by stratified random sampling. Data were collected using demographic information form and social network questionnaire and analyzed using SPSS software version 22.
Results: The mean age of the samples was 21.85  ±  3.22 years. Pearson statistical test showed that there was no significant relationship between the use of social networks and academic performance of students, but there was a significant correlation between students' academic performance and computer use time.
Conclusions: The results indicate that the majority of students are members of social networks and the use of virtual social networks does not affect their academic performance. Therefore, considering the emergence of social networks and the lack of familiarity of students with all the effects of using it and the differences in the results of studies, more research on other aspects affecting the life and health of students seems necessary.
Keywords: Social Networks, Academic Performance, Students of Medical Sciences
