The issue taken in consideration for this study is related to the extensive involvement of children in social media web pages and especially Facebook’s social network. The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between the level of engagement of pupils in social network sites and their performance of academic achievement. The methods used in the study are secondary data review and quantity methods. The population of this survey is school pupils between 10 to 15 years old. The sample was 1323 pupils surveyed in this study, selected at random from elementary and secondary schools. The data analysis focuses primarily in regressive models of the logistic binary. The study findings revealed a high level of pupils' involvement in social networks and mainly on Facebook's social network. It was also shown that the social network Facebook has a negative impact on the learning objectives of pupils who have opened an address compared to others who don’t have an address in this network. Modern technologies are developing rapidly and the relationship between teachers, parents and pupils must function effectively through continuous communication on the effects of social network sites on their learning process.
