    Abstract

    This research focused on the educational context of social media in a South Pacific regional university – USP (University of the South Pacific). This paper looks at how Facebook can be used for knowledge sharing, collaboration and interaction and learner-centered activities with students of different gender, age, country of origin and time spent on social networking sites. This study is useful in setting the premise for future large scale empirical research. Tertiary institutes, scholars and educators will benefit from this research.
