Social Media and College: Does it Help or Hurt?

Due to rapidly advancing technology, today’s college students often face decisions that prior generations would never have needed to consider. This includes the use of social media and its effects, both positive and negative.

As you’ve probably figured out, there are numerous benefits to using social media to discover information, connect with friends and family , job hunt and so much more. But, there are also big buckets of negatives, ranging from wasting time, to false information being posted, cyberbullying and more.

Social media posts and profiles can have an impact, positive or negative, before you’ve even been accepted to your college of choice, and they can also both help and hurt your efforts to get a specific job, or advance in your career.

4 Reasons Why You Should Consider Using Your Tax Refund to Pay Off Student Debt

Tax season has a mixed effect on people. Some people dread it, while others look forward to it. On the one hand, doing taxes is a nuisance and it’s especially painful if you’re paying out of pocket.

On the other hand, it’s exciting to get a tax refund and think about how to put that extra money to use. Sometimes, a tax refund can be even bigger than a bonus or a paycheck, and without the income taxes.

In all, the IRS paid out $324 billion in tax refunds in 2018 . The average federal tax refund was $2,727. That’s a pretty good chunk of change.

If you are expecting a tax refund, it is worth your while to sit down and plan out what you want to do with the money. Otherwise, it might be too easy to spend the money just as fast as you received it.

Making Investing Less Weird, One ETF at a Time

Investing is weird, right? Well, it is until you try it with SoFi. That’s why, earlier today, we launched two new ETFs (aka exchange traded funds) called the SoFi Select 500 ETF (NYSE: SFY) and SoFi Next 500 ETF (NYSE: SFYX). Maybe you’re an investing pro and know all about ETFs. If you are, then skip this next sentence: ETFs are funds that track a stock index or basket of assets – they trade like stocks on an exchange, with prices changing as they are bought and sold.

With an expense ratio of zero for both SFY and SFYX for at least a year1 (yes – ZERO fee), these funds are designed with your needs and preferences in mind. We don’t think you should pay money to make money. And we know getting started is the greatest barrier to entry when it comes to investing, so we wanted to make this as accessible as possible.
