ACCEPTANCE AND USE OF SOCIAL NETWORK SITES. AN ANALYSIS AMONG UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

The purpose of the research is to establish the degree of influence of community and relational integration (i.e., social integration in online social networks) on the behaviors of post-adoptive use of its members in accordance with the principles set in the European Higher Education Area, EHEA. The cross-check of the proposed relationships will allow not only to design future strategies to strengthen the integration of the student but also to suggest new uses (emerging) related to their learning activities. Online social networks are an essential tool to complement the teaching and learning services that respond to the need of attention of students associations and to actively promote the quality of established community relationships. In fact, our research upholds the use of social networks to obtain greater personal autonomy and welfare in learning as well as the social spread of knowledge and the promotion of building skills and competencies. The paper is summarized in the study of student behavior as well as their acceptance and use of the services provided through online social networks. From the relationships created and promoted, not only information, entertainment and assistance could be obtained, but also a sense of belonging and integration into a wider community with important implications for improving performance is derived.
