Hi Morteza89,
Glad to have someone to agree with me on certain issue, especially when it comes to social networking site because most of my friends didn't have the same opinion as mine. They did tried a few times encourage me to join some networking site, but fortunately I refused them with the simplest reason of not trusting particular site with my details and other reason.
The very best of luck,
Kind regards,
Umi Zahrok

Hi Idreesha,
Happy to have someone who has the same opinion on some certain topic with you, especially on something that extremely difference from others around the globe, as we know that most of the world population love what is called social networking site... What a sad world we live in Idreesha.
The very best of luck,
Kind regards,
Umi Zahrok

I'm from Brazil and I've got a lot of "online friends" on my Facebook page. People from Argentina to Kazakhstan. It's awesome how the knowledge in other languages, especially in English, can connect you to different people. I try really hard to keep in touch with them, of course sometimes it's not easy. But I just love to know what they do, how they treat their friends.... this sort of things... Without forget my "real" and brazilian friends, for sure :DD
