Abstract
Thanks to the presence of ICT, proliferation in social media users has occurred and changed the way human beings socialize with each other worldwide. It is undeniable that the prevalence of Facebook as a dominant platform has put questions about how and why diverse virtual communities have employed it. In relation to academic purposes, Facebook has been considered a supporting tool in many parts of the world. To gain some better insight into the use of Facebook in English language teaching and learning in Vietnam, this study was conducted to investigate students’ attitudes towards using Facebook in ELT among English- major students. The sample was 323 Vietnamese respondents. The quantitative method was applied for data analysis. Overall, the result revealed that English-major students in Vietnam expressed positive attitudes towards leveraging the Facebook platform in ELT. Consequently, there was a necessity of ultilizing Facebook as an integral attribute of education in the digital era. To end, some suggestions and implications were raised for ELT development.
