This study aims to determine the influence of the use of e-portfolio tasks through the Facebook network on the creativity of students in the subject of physics in junior high school. One Group Pretest-Posttest research design was used in the quasi-experimental research type, which included 31 first-year students (Grade 7), selected by purposive sampling for the research sample. Data collection techniques were conducted using tests, performance assessment, portfolio assessment, observation, and teacher interviews. Data analysis was conducted with the use of correlation test and correlation hypothesis test. T-test was used to analyse the data collected. The result from the post-test showed that there was a positive and significant influence on the students’ creativity in physics. Based on the results of data analysis, the obtained correlation coefficient was 0.99965 with very strong correlation interpretation, and tcount > ttable. Thus, it can be concluded that there was a positive and significant influence of the e-portfolio tasks through the Facebook network on students’ creativity in physics lessons at junior high school.
