Title Social networks as significant factor in the professional development of young people in Kosovo
Author Arlinda Beka
Professional development is a continuous trend of youth in Kosovo. The tendency of the students and other youth to reach relevant information, which affects their professional, pushes them to refer to various sources of information.

So far the main sources of information are considered local newspapers, television advertisements and newsletters that have been displayed in different locations. Now these information platforms are considered inappropriate by the youth. They prefer more to use the social networks where they can access information. Social networks that are mostly used among the youth of our country are considered Facebook, Twiter and LinkedIn. This paper presents data on how students of the University of Prishtina regular use social networks.
