Read the paragraph below. Can you find mistakes? How many? Can you correct them
Internet has changed the way
how we keep in touch with other people. In the past, the friendships had been
more face to face, in other words, personal but now, everything has changed
completely. For that reason, there are some points of view in favor and
against online friendships.
The points in favor are that you are supposed to be communicated with your friends at any time even if they are far away from your physical location. Besides, you have the possibility to find friends that you have not seen in ages.
On the other hand, nowadays, people spend more time sending messages, e-mails, photos, videos, audios and so on between them than in a real face-to-face conversation. Also, we have friends in our social networks that we do not know personally nor their life style.
To sum up, the technology must be used only when is necessary, not all the time, as we could lose the opportunity to get to know better other people.
Hope it helps for your blog in Cambridge. Remember to read the unit before you starts writing.
