(Finger. G, pp. 94,119&112)<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
  67. 67. Conclusion:-<br /> <br />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. <br />
