It is not only easy to use but also helps encourage an autonomous learning within a social environment for students. Facebook is currently the most popular platform for online social networking among university students. It can create motivation and increase students’ social relationships outside of the classroom. One of the interesting activities many young people do is commenting each other on their friends’ statuses and pictures.
