  NAME:__________________________ DATE______________ SEMESTRIAL TEST PAPER - 9 B A.Reading Comprehension 1.Read the text carefully and mark the sentences as True or False. (10 p) Facebook Do you use any of the social networking websites which are so popular these days, the places where you can connect up with friends and relatives and meet people? If you‟re younger you may use MySpace, adults are more likely to be found on Facebook and busy professionals may prefer something like LinkedIn. But at least two of these sites have one thing in common: apart from being social spaces where you can meet and chat to people, share photos and other things, they‟ve all added new verbs and nouns to the language in the past couple of years. Let‟s take a look at some examples. You can  facebook   your holiday photos ( upload   them to your Facebook page),  facebook   someone to see who they are ( look him up  in Facebook),  facebook someone about a party ( contact   someone through their Facebook page) and ask permission to facebook   someone ( add   them as a Facebook friend). As you can see, „facebook‟ is a pret ty versatile word, and you can say the same about „myspace‟.  While you‟re „facebooking‟ or „myspacing‟ you may also find yourself „commenting‟ (writing a comment on someone‟s Facebook or MySpace page), as in this example: „I commented Mary that she should come to the  pub on Saturday and she commented me that she couldn‟t because she was going away for the weekend‟.
