Facebook objective is "to help you connect and share with the people in your life". At the same time, Facebook is one of the fastest growing social networks that helps people communicate efficiently with their friends, families, coworkers, and classmates.
* 50% of Facebook's active users log on to Facebook in any given day.
* Average user is connected to 80 community pages, groups and events.
Some of them are your learners and they know how to use Facebook effectively! Using Facebook for e-Learning could inspire many of our students to learn. As a result, my question is how can we use Facebook for e-Learning?
For an e-Learning course I would prefer a Facebook group instead of a Facebook page. Groups could be closed (customize group settings) and they can be used for courses and projects. On a class group page you can add links, videos, discussion threads, photos, create events and send group messages. On the other hand, pages are opened and they are used more for promotion and branding.
