Social media has become a medium of communication in today’s educational organisations. It is seen to be relevant in encouraging effective communication. This study aims to identify the level of frequency in utilising social media among teachers, level of communication between principals and teachers, plus the relationship between social media and effective communication practices between teachers and principals in schools. Quantitative method was used through administration of a survey questionnaire and findings were analysed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) Version 25.0. A total of 312 respondents answered the questionnaire. The findings of the study found the level of frequency in utilising social media amongst teachers is high (mean=4.15, SD=.49), whereas the level of frequency of communication between principals and teachers is moderate (mean=3.56, SD=.54). Furthermore, the relationship between the utilisation of social media and effective communication between teachers and principal is weak (r =.503, N 312, p < 0.01). Hence, it can be concluded that although teachers have a high level of social media usage, it is only moderately used for educational communications, and consequently does not necessarily impact or encourage effective communication between teachers and principals in the schools.
