Today, nearly every individual has internet connected devices like smartphones, laptops, computers etc. The easy-to-use feature of internet connected devices have enabled people to explore the virtual world regardless of physical limits and borders. The advances in internet technology have also led investors to create social networking websites where people can easily communicate and interact with each other via their smartphones, laptops and tablets. However, this constant use of internet and social networking websites has caused people to spend more time with their devices when compared with the past. Taking this information into account, the main aim of this study is to explore and analyze the habits of Ardahan university students about social networking websites use. Focus group interview method was used in the study. The data were recorded and transcribed into words.
