    Facebook has become a part of almost every student’s college life, and while a large number of students seem to get advantages from accessing Facebook most of the time for the intention of information exchange for educational goals, making acquaintances, and other related activities, the literature proposes that the following social networking site can become an addiction to some users, which is one of the today’s higher education matters nowadays. The aim of this study, therefore, is to inspect the sensation of Facebook addiction among university students especially students from Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman. Qualitative study using focus group interview has been used in gathering more data from these students. The results obtained led to the conclusion that like most activities, moderation and controlled use are the element. So, the proper approach in preparing students for life in a knowledge-based society is helping them exercising self-control and achieve a level of balance when it comes to using Facebook. It is believed that the findings of this study would help other researchers that inspect similar research by contributing to the limited academic literature in this area.
