5 Social Media Sites College Students Must Try

[ad#468]

85% of students at 4-year universities have Facebook profiles. College students spend most of their time on Facebook and don’t realize that they can be more productive if they spend more time on social media websites catered for them.

Social media sites geared towards college students can help you network, collaborate, communicate, and make your daily college tasks a bit easier. Did I mention all the services are free?

5 Social Media Sites College Students Must Try

Gradefund

Are you a straight As’, 4.0 GPA who is feeling the pinch of tuition costs? You are in luck because Gradefund can help you get paid for getting good grades. The process is very simple, create an account, invite your friends and family to be sponsors, upload your academic transcript at the end of each semester and once Gradefund verifies it, you’ll get paid.

InternshipRatings

There is no hidden meaning to InternshipRatings, it does what it says. It has reviews from students that have already been through internships and know how valuable they are. According to the website, the idea behind InternshipRatings was to give you the “real deal” and that’s exactly what it does with candid reviews.

Zimride


Do you want to save money? Need company? Care about the environment? If you said yes to any of the questions, Zimride is the service for you. The best thing about Zimride is you can sign in using your Facebook username and password and through your Facebook profile Zimride will list all the ride options in your area from people using the app on Facebook.

Zumeo

Funny name but Zumeo can help you find a job. There are many job boards online but still, this one is worth the try because you can sign in using your Facebook username and password and leverage the power of Facebook.

Evernote


Evernote is a very cool web and mobile application that makes it easy to remember things big and small from your notable life using your computer, phone, and the web. It has a slick iPhone application that you can use to take picture of notes in class on anything interesting you might want to access later on.

    This is truly what the Web is all about: helping each other find what we are looking for. Great job!

    I didn't realize that there were so many useful websites out there. As a college student, I should take advantage of these websites.

  • guadalupeortega

    This is really helpful. We all need help remembering things sometimes and getting jobs too. Thanks for the great sites.

  • Misgunderso

    I like all the great ideas you have posted, specially the job finding part is a really great idea because now of this days people have a hard time finding jobs with this bad economy, so it's a huge help that you have provided the job opportunity in here.

    I enjoyed reading this blog because it helped me find some interesting websites that I never even knew about. I found this very different from a lot of the other websites that we are usually on. That is so true when you say “College students spend most of their time on Facebook and don’t realize that they can be more productive if they spend more time on social media websites catered for them.” I actually spend most of my time on facebook even when I'm doing my homework. It' so addicting but since your networking all day why not do something productive and/or get paid for it at the same time.

    I like the GradeFund page, follow this website I can raise money to pay for your education.

    The websites can be useful in many ways. Since there are more than one website it can be hard to choose from which one fits you unless you spend a lot of time reading about which one is better than the other.

    this is great because there are not a lot of people that hire others that are under the age of 18.

    Zumeo sounds like a great wesite!!! I think that a great way to try and get a new job or a job period if you dont have one. I feel that you will discover lots of social skills on this site with reading other people comments and blog. You also get the chance to meet and see what your friends, colleagues, and other important people are saying. And maybe if your resume is not right it will better help you know how to create your resume. It could also help me know what to say in inviews and how to talk to my manger. Im started to think that the net is very educational and will help people in the real world. I dont know if it will work but its better to calisthenics then not try at all.

  • mmaurice12

    These sites are useful and assentual for all college student. It helps to prepare student for the real world.

  • Isaiah Pita

    i think all of these sites should be appealing to college students. My favorite one is Zumeo. A lot of college students have a hard time finding a job, and for a website to help somebody by posting updates, job boards, and also using facebook. Since a lot of us use facebook that's really helpful for us. With the other websites they're also interesting to use as a college student. The websites give you ideas, and a new look at social media because its not just twitter, facebook, and myspace out there for us. Its more educational, and worth it. Not saying other social media sites is not worth it, but it just has more to do with school, and priorities in life in my opinion.

  • yuettse

    I like those social media sites. Especially GradeFund, it helps student to get a great education

  • Mai

    These sites are definitely useful for college students. Evernote is a very cool web. I like an idea how you take picture of things/notes instead of memorizing it. Very good application.

  • BerneyTee3

    You definitely know the needs of college students.
    “5 Social Media Sites College Students Must Try,” is extremely useful for all college students in many aspects of their life.
    First and for most, Zumeo caught my eye. After exploring the website, this page will help any lost or confused student in deciding what career best suits their personality. Now everyone can find their path in life. This blog has the power to change lives. Kudos Zahid.

    Good job! I agree that students spend a lot of time on social networking sites such as Twttier, Myspace, Facebook etc. A lot of college students should be informed about these sites. I checked out Evernote and from the little I've seen, It seems like it would become very useful to me in the future. I am an extremely forgetful person and this is just the kind of site I need. I try to remember things by writing them down on pieces paper but most of the time I lose the paper or forget I wrote it down. With this site I can be reminded every day when I get on the computer.
