Facebook

Yesterday two students asked me if your American peers have personal blogs like you do. I told them that I had already discussed with the teacher in America that the mode of communication they use most is Facebook (my 20 and 22 year old brother and sister live on it!). So we think Facebook may be the best way for you to get to know them and get to see them. I had decided not to integrate it into the course not to send you on technology overload like last semester, but since you've asked....

Facebook is a closed community. It's not like our blogs, which are public. First you have to join www.facebook.com but you're experts at registering for things, right ;-) Then you use the friend finder to look for people. I'm there, as is Sara DeTomi (one of your peers studying in England this semester) and I think a few others are there two. Once you find someone you want to share pages with, you have to invite them to be a friend. This will send an invitation and then, if they accept, you're friends and can see and write on each other's pages.

Let me know if you decide to do it and if you have any difficulties.

Hi, Sarah! I spoke with Marigny (my American peer) about Facebook during our first Skype exchange. She sent me an email with the link and now I'm registered! So, Marigny and I are friends on Facebook now! :-)

Hi Sarah, I've found out about facebbok last semester when I was in Austria,and now I use it to keep in touch with my ex room mate and all the people I met during my erasmus period. It can be very helpful but also become a sort of addiction (and i know it very well!). If any of you want to contact me on facebbok, you just have to type my name and surname.
