Abstract


The need of information and communication for humans drives the development of the internet. In a university, students are internet users who sometimes not able to use it properly. Many studies see the relationship between gender and internet usage. Among students, the use of internet has an influence on learning achievement. This study aims to analyze the difference in learning achievement of male and female students who use social media. And to find out the difference reasons of using social media by them. The sample was taken about 300 college students in Padang City. The result by using Crosstab Analysis and Chi-Square Test showed that there were no difference between male and female on learning achievement who use social media. And there were no difference reasons of using social media between male and female college students. The expected this result can be used for further study especially about students learning behaviours so it can produce students who have good achievement.
