I will discuss a research a study on using a Facebook page in English and its results. It investigates what Iraqi students gain from interacting on the page an EFL context. For data collection, an online questionnaire of 10 multiple-choice and open-ended questions and items was sent to the participants who are college and graduate students studying English. The outcomes of this study are important to both learners and teachers. Learners will become aware of the gains resulting from interacting on this page. Moreover, the teachers will know better how to use such online forums in their classrooms.
