Online Social Networking Part 1 (Adv.)


About this lesson
In this lesson you'll learn how to:
- use common social networking buzzwords
- comment on other people's use of social networking sites


John changed his status


Throughout this lesson, we've highlighted in red the vocabulary that is most likely to come up in any discussion about social networking sites. These include words for features (e.g., news feed) and words for things you do on the sites (e.g. message someone or update your profile). We've made up a fictional social networking site called "MyFace" that we will use to discuss the topic! I went on MyFace the other day and found all these people from high school that I'd totally forgotten about!


那天我上了MyFace的网站﹐结果在那裡找到了好多我高中本来早就忘了的同学!
Did you see that John changed his status from "single" to "in a relationship?"
你看到了麼﹖John把他的婚姻从"孑然一身"改成"恋爱之中"了。
I wish he would post a picture of his new girlfriend.
真希望他能发一张他新女朋友的照片。


Someone commented


Actually, I think there's a picture already up there, he just didn't tag her.
那裡其实已经有一张了﹐只不过他没有在照片里把她标出来。
Oh, I thought that was his sister since she's tagged in his "family" album.
噢﹐我还以為那是他妹呢﹐因為她被标在"家人"相册里了。
No, someone commented on the picture saying that his girlfriend was pretty.
不是他妹妹﹐有人在那张照片下评论﹐说他女朋友真漂亮。
 

Sally got married
Did you see Sally Green updated her MyFace profile yesterday?
你看见了麼﹖Sally Green昨天更新了她在MyFace上的个人状态。
Yeah, it said on the news feed that she got married!
是啊﹐她在最新动态中公布已经结婚!
Did you message her to see if she was for real or just joking?
你有没有发信息问她是真的还是开玩笑﹖
Her relationship status has said "engaged" for a few months now so I assumed it was true.
她的婚姻几个月来一直是"订婚"﹐所以我估计她是真结婚了。

Chris is having a birthday party
Did Chris invite you to his birthday party on Saturday night?
Chris请你去参加星期六晚上他的生日会了麼﹖
No, although I think I remember getting a MyFace invitation to something.
没有﹐不过我记得我在MyFace上收到了一个去什麼聚会的邀请。
I wouldn't have known it was his birthday, but MyFace sent me a reminder.
我本来不知道是他生日﹐不过MyFace给我发了个生日提醒。
I'll write a birthday shout-out on his wall since I won't be able to make it out on Saturday.
我星期六去不了﹐所以我会在他的留言板上写个生日祝福。
