Positive relationship has opened a new area for scholars to research on human relationships. In positive relationships, elements that can enhance and maintain the positivity of relationships are essentials. This paper aims to review one of the element of positive relationships in the Facebook. Other researchers working in the area of positive relationships have focused on the subject within offline context such as parent-child, teacher-student, couple and friendship relationships. Limited research in positive relationships has been conducted within online context. Yet, it is very important as the advancement of technology in 21th century has changed the method of communication from more offline to more online. Online interactions are important because they have their own rules, language and etiquette. Therefore the elements of offline positive relationships cannot be directly applicable to online world. This paper reviews support as one of the element for positive relationships via Facebook.
