Social networking sites have a place in education. The benefits of social networking sites to create an online social presence for students could be beneficial for academics as well. This ongoing project is to analyze the connections students in an online master’s program are making through the use of Facebook. Information on using Facebook for course work, group work, and creating an academic social network will be gathered through student surveys. This is a newly initiated project investigating a connection between social networking sites and online education.
