Abstract

The world today requires the use of different forms of communication, technological advances make people spend more time in front of a computer using the different tools that the internet offers them.

Social networks are currently an excellent tool to work with students, one of the main is Facebook, currently the most used by people everywhere. This network allows the contact between groups, the publication of images, videos and instant messaging as part of the services offered.

The tutor can rely on this tool to provide academic support and even provide psychological counseling when the tutoring requires it, using tools such as private messaging; Although among the difficulties is the time that the tutor must dedicate to Facebook, establishing different schedules is an excellent strategy to have a closer relationship with the student.
