(FOX19) -

Social media can help you get into the college of your choice. Social Media expert Nikki Means of Project Socialize talks about the role social media plays with students, particularly student athletes.

She lists the benefits and pit-falls of students using social media.

Benefits:

  2. Use YouTube to showcase their highlight videos and practice videos.
