Abstract/Summary This book examined the influence of the new, revolutionary Social Networking (SN) tool on the education sector nationally and internationally. SN usage by businesses and individuals has become a significant instrument for searching, conducting research, communication, entertainment, commerce and information, as well as teaching. SN was introduced to simplify communication, collaboration, contribution, creativity and interaction among individuals/groups within the same sector worldwide. SN has become an essential part of operations in various sectors including business enterprises, health and education. The use of SN in the education sector can bring diverse opportunities and risks to enhance students’ engagement with their colleagues and teachers universally; however, this technology can bring some risks from four perspectives: (1) Cognitive Development, (2) Social Development, (3) Physical Development and (4) Security. This book aimed to explore the opportunities and risks of using SN in relation to various countries from regions including Asia Pacific, Europe, Mediterranean, America, Middle East and the Caribbean. Furthermore, a Social Networking and Education Model (SNEM) is developed to promote and implement Social Networking in the education sector.
