The purpose of this study was to research this question in a private Christian high school, “How are teenage students using social media and what are the implications for education?” The definition(s) of social media are provided, along with a qualitative research study, illustrating the information concerning the participants in a private Christian high school, relating the research findings to previous compiled literature reviews concerning incorporating social media in a high school educational classroom. The methods, instrumentation, and procedures used are described. The results provide agreements and disagreements from the influence of social media. The analysis section of the research presented provides concise summaries from the sample population used and will demonstrate influences through philosophical and theoretical perspectives and provides social media through a Christian worldview from both a biblical and critical analysis standpoint.
