The emerging social networking tools that are ready to incorporate in educational settings and their popularity among younger generations make them compelling applications for higher education faculty. The interest and growth in social networking do not only represent new emerging technologies that may possibly be used in education, but they also refer to the networks where communication and interaction affect the way we know and learn things. This paper first reviews the literature on social networks and then discusses their possible adoption in teacher education. It is the authors' hope that the paper provides insight to teacher educators so the integration process would be seamless in teacher education programs.
