What do you think of social network? Do you like it? Will you add your family members, especially parents, on Facebook, Twitter, or Weibo? Will you start one of them just becuase all of your friends have it?

Hope my clarification helps. :) Merry Xmas!

Secondly, Mandarin as the common language has been accepted among the people even with other cultures. e.g. my cousin is from a Muslim family, but she can't speak or write any Arabic. Thus some traditions still remain, but regarding the languages and characters, I'm afraid most cultures can't keep them independent. Of course, there are lots of reservations inChinafor those cultures. They have their own TV channels, banks, etc. Thirdly,

Thanks for your opinion :) staying in contact is good, but do you have any pics or comments that you don't want your family to see on FB? Or you can share everything with your family?
