In an era of great technological development, the complete focus of communication between people has been changed. A simple conversation, a major deal, a life changing event is just a click away. People around the world have become equal players on a single scene where they can all come out and “play”. This is the natural consequence of the highly technological world of the 21st century and the era of internet. Education and the process of learning are essential characteristics of human beings. They are based on motivation, creation and development of ideas. Striving to gather and practice as much of that, people have created all the shrines of knowledge and studying: schools, universities and libraries. Leading philosopher Michael Patrick Lynch shows how our digital way of life makes us overvalue some ways of processing information over others, and thus risks distorting what it means to be human. Knowledge based on reason plays an essential role in society and that there is much more to “knowing” than just acquiring information. This paper looks into social media as one aspect of the internet culture and its specific role in the learning process of the students.
