Abstract/Description: This study examines how the prevalent usage of social networking sites influences college student’s social capital. It explores student attitudes towards social media, social trust, and civic engagement, all of which will be compared against their overall SNS usage on some of the most popular platforms. The analyses are reported from an online survey sample of undergraduate students from a large southeastern research university (N = 88). Findings suggest a strong correlation between both the relationship between student’s social media usage and their civic engagement and overall attitude towards social media. No correlation was found between the size of a student’s SNS network and their levels of civic engagement.
