Social Media and Student Athletes

The 21st century is the age of technological advancements, specifically with the growth in popularity of social media. The benefits of these platforms is incredible for ranges of areas like business and building your own brand. One particular group of individuals that can greatly reap from social media is student athletes. With the inability for coaches to visit every school or game, social media can help students create their own name and promote their athletic skills. 

Social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Tiktok are extremely popular and young people are found each day by recruiters for acting, modeling, music, and art careers. The same can happen for student athletes. Using hashtags and following the algorithm can generate much attraction to videos of students and their sport. The majority of coaches and sport recruiters are very active on social media and use it to familiarize themselves with potential recruits. Student athletes can share and promote their highlight videos via social media and experience more success through this medium. The tool of social media should be utilized by all student athletes.
