Listen to the dialogue "Social Connections". Alex and Katia talk about using social media and how it affects their lives.
Write the words that you will hear. Fill in the gaps.
1. Alex: OK. I used to be on Facebook a lot before. I was like checking it every day and, you know, my friends' walls and trying to catch up with everybody on Facebook. But then I realised that I was losing a lot of time on it.
2. Alex: Yeah, that's right. It's very funny how all this communication has changed in the last few years. I remember just four years ago or even five years ago I wasn't on Facebook and all the communication I used to have with my friends was through email or by phone or by meeting you know. But now with Facebook everybody on Facebook. Sometimes if you don't publish something on Facebook, it seems that you didn't do anything so I don't know it's just weird.
3. Alex: I am more in communication with people that I haven't been in touch with for the last ten years let's say. Like all my friends from elementary school that I wasn't really in touch and everybody's now on Facebook and now on what I'm doing or why I do this, what I'm going to do on next vacation, what about my plans for anything so that's a good thing I think. It really depends on how much importance you give to it.
