In this thesis we examined the habits of students of the first and third year of high school in social interaction live and on Facebook. The study included 175 students who attend High school Petrinja: general grammar school, food technician high school and veterinary technician high school. The goal was to gain insight into the habits and forms of social interaction that are the most common in adolescent age. The aim was to examine differences by gender and grade which students attend, and also in the analysis was included the variable of parental education. Research was conducted with a questionnaire that contained 64 variables and besides socio-demographic characteristics of students, it contained questions about social interaction live, including the habits of leisure activities and friendships in real life. In addition, we asked them about the habits and interaction on Facebook. The implementation of the chi-square test and factor analysis were obtained statistically significant correlations among some variables. There is a statistically significant correlation by gender in time that students spend on Facebook. Girls are more likely to spend more than four hours, while boys are likely to spend less than an hour on Facebook. The correlation by gender was obtained with the posting content on Facebook, where boys are likely not to post their photos and girls are likely to post several times a month. Girls are also more likely to comment and like content on Facebook. Statistically significant correlations were also obtained by the grade which studens attend. Students of the first grade are more likely not to be every day on Facebook, while third grade students are more likely to spend two to four hours on Facebook. It is also shown that the students of the first grade are likely to achieve social interaction on Facebook than in person. In examining the relationship of social interaction and habits in real life with the time and ways of spending time on Facebook, it is shown that the students on Facebook with up to 50 friends in real life do not have any friends, whereas students on Facebook that have 101-200 friends have one friend. A factor that has an impact on spending time on Facebook is father's education. Students whose father has a lower level of education are more likely to spend more time on Facebook. It can be concluded that there are some differences by gender and by grade of students when it comes to social interaction on Facebook.
