Literature explores the technological development that universities have gone through and that they are currently facing, especially with the use of new technologies about information and communication(TIC) applied to the teaching-learning process, so several models have been created also theories to adopt technology in the educational field, such as learning management systems (LMS) and social networking sites (SNS) both in the electronic learning (eLearning) and learning blended (bLearning) modalities, which are the object of analysis from different theoretical frameworks, try to identify determining characteristics about their use and the impact on the educational process. Studies that were analyzed tend to consider that the synergy of these tools, mostly from a technological approach where importance is given to the "e" (electronic) and neglecting the "Learning" have led to think that each of these approaches that characterize these tools individually could be achieved by combining the best attributes of the LMS with the SNS in order to maximize the strengths and reduce the weaknesses of both tools, integrating technological approaches, pedagogical, social and cognitive.
