Social media can help learning English because the basic principles of social media are in line with language theory which emphasizes collaboration and social interaction in the construction of knowledge. The aims of this study were to find out whether pre-service EFL teachers get the effects of social media to learn English based on their perceptions and on which themes of English they get the most effect. The research method was a cross sectional survey study. A readymade closed-ended questionnaire was used to collect the data. The collected data were analysed by percentages and descriptive statistics. The result showed that 73.07% of the samples perceived high effect of using social media to learn English, 26.7% of them experienced moderate effect and 0.22% of the samples felt low effect. Furthermore, among the six themes, vocabulary development was affected mostly by students’ use of social media to learn English with the highest mean 4.22 and standard deviation 0.68. This study also gave some implications for ELT and further research.
