A convenient sampling was used to select 30 diploma students of Computers and Mathematical Sciences in UiTM Cawangan Johor.

As for the use of Facebook group discussion, the students reflected to have agreed that the use of the social networking site has helped them in their language learning.

Therefore, all these teaching and learning experiences of using Facebook group discussion in encouraging participation among ESL students can lead to important implications purposes for effective teaching and learning strategies.
