IELTS Speaking part 1: Topic SOCIAL MEDIA

  • Which social media websites do you use?
    Well, a lot. I am active in many different platforms like Facebook, YouTube or Instagram. I mainly use these sites to keep in touch with others and stay updated on what is going on in the world.
  • How much time do you spend on social media sites?
    I don’t think I can tell exactly but I have to say, I use them quite a lot. Of course, this depends on how many tasks I have to finish that day. But I mean whenever I am free from work or study, I would definitely go online and surf Facebook or YouTube.
  • What kind of information about yourself have you put on social media?
    Mostly photos of me and my friends. I think there is nothing to do with privacy if I post those pictures online. They’re beautiful memories and I want to use social media sites as a place to store and share those moments with others.
  • Is there anything you don’t like about social media?
    I would say it is really time-consuming. I know social media is supposed to be fun only, but the fact is I am wasting my precious time using such sites. And if I cannot manage my time well, my study and work may be badly affected too.
