It is reasonable that technology has already become part of people‟s daily life. The number of young learners who are literate with new technologies as new means of communication is growing. Therefore, the use of current Information Communication Technology (ICT) along with its internet and web-based tools in classroom and teaching learning activities becomes increasingly reasonable and demanding. Facebook is chosen for this teaching and learning design since some studies suggest that this ICT successfully encourage students to participate in education settings, and access information anytime and anywhere confidently with students‟ own ability. It is to maintain students‟ interest than a passive teacher directed learning experience. The main focus of this project is to design a Facebook based activities for additional task in the conventional class. Under an English subject for the first year, this paper presents the opportunity to use one of popular social network sites; Facebook for language teaching and learning design. The discussion is about the background of using available technology, particularly Facebook as an online social media in education, and then, it will be narrowed down into the use of this online social media for language teaching and teaching, particularly for ESL students. Intentionally, the discussion will be used as the basic idea for teaching design using online-based media in the classroom. Therefore, it presents the theoretical framework, the opportunity, and alternative implementation of Facebook as a teaching media with its activities.
