The Arabic language is facing many unfamiliar linguistic phenomena, such as the phenomenon of spread of grammatical mistakes in applying the syntactic rules applicable to “noun” in the sentence. Therefore, this study aims to monitor the places of grammatical mistakes that the Arabic writers fall in, on the social networking sites, in order to identify the factors contributing to these grammatical mistakes, and to look at the extent of which it affects the readers‟ understanding of the purpose of writing and its impact on the eloquence of the language itself, with the objective of creating a third-party computer program for evaluating the application of grammatical structures in Electronic Text. This study adopts the descriptive and analytical method to collect about 200 Arabic writing data between 2016 and 2018. The SPSS data analysis was also used to extract the most common grammatical errors among the Arab writers on the social networking sites. The study finds that the highest percentage of errors appeared to be the portion of al-Manṣubat, as it reached 45%, while the lowest percentage happened to be the share of al-Majrurat, with total amount of 22%., and that this phenomenon does not constitute a communication gap between the readers and writers and not affect their understanding. Also, that these shortcomings will inevitably affect the eloquence of Arabic language in the future, which may hinder its development and sophistication.
