    • 61. With the use of facebook the same information can be accessed simultaneously, all can be engage in discussion, gain further insight, explore material and exchange ideas or theories (Fraser. S, pp. 163-192).

    • 64. Facebook allows opportunity for students to interact
    • 65. Teacher need to allocate time for conversations
    • 66. Express any ideas and discuss theories.
    For all this to succeed with facebook the teacher would need to implement the social constructivist approach, so students can develop and enhance collaborative skills, allowing times for social interaction, so students can expressing their views, ideas and theories to each other to form a collaborative community. (Finger. G, pp. 94,119&112)
  • 67. Conclusion:-
    The social world of a learner with facebook can include the people that directly affect that person, including teachers, friends, students, administrators, and participants in all forms of activities. Social networking and the constructivism approach, involves the learners in real world situations, with the emphasis being on context in which the learning takes place, it provides opportunity for students or learners to construct new knowledge and understanding for the authentic experience. Social networking can encourage learners to engage in dialogue with other students and the teacher, while maintaining the co-operative learning process.
