Kübra Okumuş,İbrahim Halil Yurdakal.

Abstract
The aim of this study is to determine the views of pre-service teachers on the use of Facebook for providing peer feedback on their microteachings. To serve this aim, a case study was conducted with 38 English language student teachers. Firstly, these student teachers did their microteachings and uploaded them to a Facebook group opened by the researchers. Then, it was provided that their classmates comment on these videos. In order to collect data, an open-ended questionnaire was conducted with the student teachers. The findings showed that the student teachers were positive using peer feedback through Facebook (PFF after then) in teacher education. PFF helped them be aware of their weaknesses and strengths in their both pedagogic and linguistic knowledge. Thus, it is suggested that SNS like Facebook are benefited in teacher education to improve both pedagogic and content knowledge of student teachers.

Key words: Peer feedback, SNS (Social Networking Sites), Facebook Groups, Pre-service Teacher Education, Microteaching
