Abstract: We live in a dynamic world surrounded by almost endless amounts of information. Riding the
coattails of information is all of the technology we have at our fingertips. For as prevalent as
technology is now, is it replacing real lasting education? Does technology have a place in our
classrooms? This study aimed to assess if Social Networking Sites can be blended as a Tool in
learning computer subjects for the BS Information Technology students at Leyte Normal
University, Tacloban City. The descriptive survey method was used which involved a
questionnaire, interviews, and observations. Two hundred seventy-six (276) students currently
enrolled during the first semester of the school year 2017-2018 served as respondents. Results
showed that the top 5 social networking sites that are preferred by respondents as a tool in
learning computer subjects are Facebook and YouTube (100.00%; n=276), this was followed by
Wiki (91.60%; n=253); LinkedIn (87.68%; n=242), Twitter (83.33%; n=230) and Blogs
(44.92%; n=124). Further, this reveals that these are the most common social networking media
deemed to have a cutting-edge learning technology which brought students with high educational
implications because of its features that is scalable and accessible even the use of smartphones.
