The results showed that to improve prosocial behavior can be done in several ways, namely considering its urgency, the impact of technology on prosocial behavior, management of the influencing factors, and the services of guidance and counselling that utilize the enhancement of technology. Thus, the school counsellors are suggested to discover the effectiveness of the ways and invent another new technique to increase prosocial behavior.
