Facebook as a language learning tool in Japan

Am attending a session by Caleb Pritchard who is advocating the use of  FB as a language learning and teaching  tool, arguing that web communication technology skills can be improved using FB and that incidental learning does take place. Caleb reported on an action research study he carried out in an EFL class, provided some hints for teachers along with conclusions suggesting using  FB as a content management system, for skills based practice, online discussion forum etc. One of  the questions concerned the point of cultural differences in the acceptance of FB , and how to deal with students that refuse to engage with FB.

  2. People not only use these websites to stay connected with the rest of the world, but business people and professionals use it for other purposes as well such as promoting their business, merchandising their products, and hitting sales over their profiles and pages on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and LinkedIn. Social Networking is more of business and communication now rather than just social networking: chatting and posting pictures.
