Abstract. This paper aims to study the behavior of using social networks by students and lecturers for learning and training purposes based on a literature review on this topic in different regions of the world in the past 10 years. The results of the review show that there is a difference in the technological behavior between lecturers and their students; which may reduce the effectiveness of educational activities. Based on the research finding, the author proposes some solutions to encourage teachers to use social networks for their work
