This paper aims at  investigating the contribution of Facebook groups in improving the writing skill of  9th grade students at Al Rashedia Primary School for Girls. This experimental research included 9th grade students from Al Rashedia Primary School for Girls at the Directorate of Education in Al Karak Province for the academic year 2015/2016. The sample consisted 20 students. The sample of the study was selected randomly. The researcher used t-tests to elicit data from the respondents. The findings of this research indicated that the improvement in student writing skill can be seen clearly in all the aspects and this proved the role of using Facebook in motivating students to be more active and enthusiastic in writing  performance since they can benefit from each other's ideas and thought to build their own writing. Also, the properties of correcting each other's mistakes help them write more confidently without the fear of  making  mistake. This research recommends further research be conducted in this area.

Keywords: 9th Grade Students, Facebook, Writing Skill, English as a Foreign Language.
