´╗┐English speech One thing that I and nearly every teenager will do right after school is checking the Facebook account. So today, I would like to discuss about one of my favourite pastimes - the Facebook. I started using Facebook about 2 years ago. Finding and making friends online using social networking websites such as Facebook has become very popular.
