This study attempts to explore the use of Facebook in teaching and learning English in a Malaysian college. The aims are to examine the kinds of language teaching and learning activities carried out via Facebook, the use of Facebook in facilitating the teaching and learning and the limitations of using Facebook in teaching and learning. The findings indicate that reading, writing and discussion activities can be held via Facebook and all of the participants agreed that Facebook helps them in learning English. This study implicates that the use of Facebook as an alternative tool can be used for teaching and learning to enhance students’ interactions outside the classroom.
