Hello howtosay_,

'I went on FB', 'I was on FB', 'I saw a post on FB', etc. are all common ways to say this. Though to be honest, in my experience people don't usually mention the specific place they saw something -- they just say they saw it.

In most contexts, I'm not sure anyone would say they stopped using FB -- in my experience, they'd probably just say, 'And then I saw X on Instagram'. But you could say that you 'signed out of' or 'logged out of' or 'logged off of' FB. Though again, most people don't actually sign out -- they just close the app or tab and move on. They might sign out of FB on their home computer before turning it off in preparation for a trip if that's what you had in mind.

I hope this helps.

All the best,
LearnEnglish team

For me, the best place for a holiday is Italy. I have never been there, but it's my dream, and I hope that one day it will come true.

My favorite place for holiday is going hiking. I like doing adventure that is amazing and thrilling. I can hear singing a song from the birds that are amazing. Furthermore, I can see the view of the city from on top of the mountain.

My favorite place for a holiday is going to the beach, particularly sitting by the beach, filling with the smell of the sea, watching and hearing the waves when crashing with each other and finally breaking on the shore.

My favorite place for a holiday is on the edge of a lake. I like to spend time, to read a good book, to observe people to play in the lake. It's very relaxing. When i'm hungry, I eat an ice cream with a cup of coffee. I like too to go hiking in the mountains, to look at the landscape, the peaks.
