Talking about Social Networking Sites

Daniela and Anita are talking about the social networking sites they use and their reasons for

using them…

Daniela: Hi, Anita! I haven’t seen you around in a while. How are you doing? I saw your

Facebook post - congratulations on winning the lottery!

Anita: Hi, Daniela! I’m doing great actually, but I haven’t won any lottery… You shouldn’t

believe everything you see on social media. It must be someone’s fake profile pretending to

be me!

Daniela: Oh, really… now, I feel gullible for believing it without asking you! Do you use

any other social media platforms apart from Facebook?

Anita: I have LinkedIn and Twitter accounts, but I haven’t used them for months. Since I

started my new job, I can barely find time to check my e-mails! I use Discord sometimes and

we use Zoom a lot for work meetings and conferences too. How about you?

Daniela: Mostly Facebook. My mum is forever tagging me in food-related videos and posts!

I’ve tried to make some of the dishes myself and I’ve really enjoyed it. I’ve been using

Discord and Skype too, to keep in touch with friends across the world.

Anita: It’s always nice to learn something new, but we shouldn’t take everything we see on

social media at face value… Some people go to extreme lengths to grab the attention of

strangers and to gain popularity! I have an idea… You should add me on Discord, and we

could have a movie night sometime - how does that sound?

Daniela: Sounds great! I’ll send you my contact details and let’s chat on there!

Anita: Great, chat to you soon!
