Facebook Pages are a great resource for educational technology professionals to find companies, thought leaders, groups and organizations to share ideas and experiences with peers while expanding industry knowledge and increasing connections. Like most Facebook users, many educators use Facebook to connect with friends new and old, but the Internet's most popular site can also be a great learning and teaching tool. There are many Facebook pages that have been created as a resource to collect, share, and disseminate information about education and education technologies. In this study an attempt has been made to know about various educational pages in Facebook. The study has taken one day survey of total no. of likes and followers for educational pages in Facebook. The educational pages are identified by the Researcher based on her explorative knowledge on the field by random browsing in the Facebook. The collected data gives us an idea about teachers who use Facebook for educational purposes. This study will motivate other teachers also to browse Facebook for enhancement of their teaching and learning skills. The modern social media could be best used for maximizing teacher’s personality, creative thoughts, innovative ideas and teaching competency.
