SNSs have been widely used in EFL (English as a Foreign Language) learning world-wide. In China, QQ, a very popular SNS, has also been widely used for EFL learning. However, there are some problems regarding the use of QQ in this field. This paper presents a study which tried to find out those problems through a questionnaire survey. Results showed that problems did exist from the perspectives of organization, manner, content and participant of discussion. Based on the identified problems, the study proposed a conception of an SNS app for EFL learning and illustrated how it worked and what its features were. As expected, this app is to help EFL learners practice more by facilitating meaningful communications in English, and thus improve their EFL skills.
