I have many virtual friends. I am from Russia and I live in Germany.
There are not so much russian people in Germany with I can communicate.
I am talking online with my internet friends, some of them I know since many years and these friends know me better than some my real friends in Germany.
With some of my internet friend I have an intense relationship and we write us many years almost every week.

it is good:)

I can't find the transcript. Can you help me?
Thanks, anyway!!!

Hello everyone,
i have used Facebook since 2007, in that time it was a little bit stranger in Egypt, and I added with difficulty less that 10 friends. now I have too many, some of them I didn't see him in real life before. But the most preferred social network is Twitter. The flow of the ideas through twitter are more easy and more valuable, especially after the "Arab spring". Most of Egyptian activists are using it, it make me more familiar with all events and news, In fact Twitter helped us a lot in our revolution and still.

it is good!

Hi everyone!!!!!!I am an English learner and I just want to know what exactly IELTS 6.5 equals in TOEFL????

Hello everyone!
I have lots of "friends" on facebook but I don't know even half of them. I know most of them only by sight, I see them around the high school but at the most we say hello, how is it going and bye! And then with some of them on facebook we talk for hours but face to face we only greet us! I know, that's a bit sad...That's why I'm thinking about leaving facebook, because you don't make real friends! To make real friends you have to talk with them face to face! 

its true but you don't need to worry about it its going to be fine luv x

Hi, everyone. I don't have online friends. I wish i could have one that speaks English better than me to help me improve my English. I'm from Colombia but i live in Venezuela.
In order to improve our English is good to have an online friend and in that way maybe we could find a real good friend.
