Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, education has become one of the most affected sectors of the industry, with everyone shifting from traditional face-to-face classes to online classes. Adjustments were made to the students' way of learning, prompting the researchers to assess how they become academically productive, given that a lot of distractions happen when using online sources. Despite many studies providing assessment for learners’ performances, there are limited established studies that assess academic productivity during the pandemic, especially for undergraduate students. Hence, this study is aimed to determine the effects of Facebook on the academic productivity of senior high school students of DLSMHSI. The study used a descriptive research design. The researchers determined the sample size through the Raosoft Sample Size Calculator and gathered the respondents using the purposive quota sampling technique. A self-made online questionnaire utilizing the Likert Scale was used in data collection. Based on the findings, Facebook has a moderate effect on the academic productivity of senior high school students of DLSMHSI. In addition, many of these students utilize Facebook for only 1 to 2 hours a day. While the application is used by the students, it is more used for communication about academics rather than leisure.
