The use of social networking technology has become increasingly pervasive and embedded into the daily lives especially in the younger generation. This study is to explore the usage of a social networking site called Facebook by participants on a high school intercultural exchange program. Social networking software is not traditionally thought to be an environment where learning would occur but is changing as researchers begin to look into this area of inquiry. While we are still at the early phases of the study, we intend to investigate how interaction with peers and other exchange students creates an environment that enables them to receive support and share ideas in a fluid and unrestrictive manner.
