IELTS Speaking sample
Today I’d like to talk about Facebook, which is probably the most commonly-used app on my phone. You know, I am not really sure why but Facebook can be very addictive.
If I’m not mistaken, I first knew about Facebook when I was in secondary school and at that time, not many people knew about it since the majority was all hooked on Zing Me, a Vietnamese social media platform. Unlike the others, I felt like using Facebook would help me to stay up-to-date much faster and expand my network throughout the world. My first username was such a joke that I had buried it over the years.
Anyway, when it comes to the reason why I spend a large amount of my time on Facebook, it is because Facebook really comes in handy whenever I need to reach out to someone instantly. Besides, I follow a lot of informative pages and blogs on Facebook so I am always up-to-date with the latest news. I find reading short stories and articles on Facebook very hard to resist for some reason.
I know it’s an unhealthy habit but I can’t help but glue my eyes to Facebook every time I use the phone!
