Spanish Language, similar to all languages of the world, has evolved and it has therefore been changing in its displacement by the time. In the second half of the last century, the languages found a new site called "social networking". The objective of the present study was to identify the impact that the writing of the Spanish language has with the use of some social networks in young people studying in the undergraduate level. The research is non-experimental cross with mixed approach. The empirical study was conducted with a sample of 102 students between 18 and 23 years old taken randomly from the degrees in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Electrical Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Civil Engineering and Architecture of the Universidad Juárez Autónoma de Tabasco, in Mexico. The technique of data collection was the application of a survey with dichotomous questions and the interpretation of the data was made quantitatively through an analysis of frequency according to those answers. In addition, the qualitative answers were analysed. Data was organized in a system of categories to infer similarities and differences with other data. The results refer that little or no relationship exists between the use of some signs and symbols used in social networks, with what students really need to communicate. Likewise, the data obtained indicate that these symbols and signs distort the quality of the drafting of the texts in Spanish, specifically in the manuscripts. The conclusion shows that the use of the internet, particularly social networks, has modified the good practices of language writing. It is expected that this type of research lead to the student towards a deep reflection on the way of improving their written communication and with this they will be best prepared to develop formal works with academic quality.
