This study is set to determine whether facebook can negatively affect students’ academic performance. A total of 50 men and female between ages of 17 to 28 years old were randomly selected to be the respondents of the study. A set of questionnaire were designed to gain primary data from the respondents about the causes of using facebook and respondent’s attitudes. The overall findings of the study shown that facebook does not have significant impact on CGPA because most of the respondents get CGPA above 3.00 and facebook does not affect their exam grades. In conclusions, some suggestions have been made to advise the respondents who addict to facebook, and to reduce the time of spending on their Facebook account. Besides that, the recommendations for future research have also been included in the final part of the report.
