Yes, I do but now I realize that spend too much time on social networks are not good for our studying...so yesterday I just deleted my Facebook's account and I'll try to stay far away from my computers because my recent test scores are not high as before.

On the one hand ,social network is good place where people can find a dozens of useful information about everything you are interesting in .I try to subcribe to pages related to my interests like books , news, medicine also it helps me to be in touch with friends who are far away from me.
Wherease, sometimes people just link from one page to another looking funny pictures or video or play online games too long . they waste theire precious time
As for me , I think that I am addicted to social network because I spent more than 3 hours per day there. Hope to use it rarely in future..

Not really….
I don't have any virtual friends on social networking sites like "English mates. com. UK." which seems to be a kind of dating website?? ツ
Mum tells me not to do that sort of things….

Hi donya123,
Thanks for your message. It's important not to spend too much time each day connected to social networks. Remember that the real world is good too! Try and make time to get outside each day and do some activities or sports with your friends.
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

I don't use social media too much I think its boring. I really like reading, writing and drawing I think its fun to do something without the internet and enjoy the real life because the social networking sites like a fake life you don't know who is the real person behind the computer its a little scary I think.

I don't spend much time on chats and network, I don't use Facebook or Twitter . I think better is writing dairy, but I also don't think Facebook is stupid, I'm neutral.

exactly yes, i spend too much time on the internet. To be honest, i prefer hanging out with my friends but my family doesnt often let me go with them therefore i use network sites so much. I don't want to use them too much in the future. But also, i can meet with people all over world. that's so good. I'm interested in learning new cultures,places.. internet is helpful for it :)

I have 2 facebook accounts :) . I use one to contact with my friends and another for learning English. I only write status in English on the second facebook page as a good way to improve the writing skill. I made friends with some foreign people who are learning English. They usually correct all mistakes in my status and I receive many experiences from them.

I love social networking. Most of my friends use social medias so it's so useful to me to keep in touch with them. I also get so many new friends that have same interest through social medias. I spend my time more on Twitter than Facebook. :)

At the time I had just signed up Facebook I spent a lot of time on it. Then I got bored and now I just visit my page when there are some important news or notifications my friends post there. I also use it to contact to my friends, it's much cheaper than to call them.
But I like Youtube a lot, I like to reading users' comments after I watch a video.
And I mainly use Twitter to watch celebrities' photos. I follow some and they're really cute and close to me on Twitter. I have no friends on this site since Twitter is not popular in my country. Facebook is the king of social network here.
