Abstract
The study aimed to reveal the role of social networking sites in developing the values of digital citizenship among students at private Jordanian universities. The descriptive survey method was used, and a questionnaire was developed for this purpose after ensuring its validity and reliability. The sample consisted of (502) male and female students who were selected by random stratified method. The results showed that the role of social networking sites in developing digital citizenship values among students at private Jordanian universities was at a high level, and there were no statistically significant differences in the role of social networking sites in developing digital citizenship values due to gender variables and the number of accounts on college social networking sites. Moreover, it was found that there were statistically significant differences due to the academic degree variable in favor of the bachelor's category. The study recommended cooperation with the Cybercrime Combating Unit and holding awareness sessions for university students to know the most important rights and duties in the virtual world, and the need to stay away from suspicious accounts.
