Social media are nowadays used on an enormous scale and affect our everyday life and communication with the surrounding environment. That is why we see their great potential in teaching university students. As young people use social media every day, they are a suitable medium for the training of project management students. In our article, we will focus on the possibilities and forms of Web 2.0 platforms for learning. We see this way of learning by using social network Facebook and by creating a fun page on this social network for students of this subject and by sharing educational content as blog posts, videos, podcasts, eBooks, and similar content to complement the lesson learned on attendance lectures and practical exercises. In this way, students' knowledge of the subject matter would be promoted. We see the introduction of the use of social media in the education process as crucial, as it is essential to wake up students’ interest in an interactive and creative way.
