英语读物:Facebook 大整容

Facebook is getting a makeover Facebook users is about to get a makeover.

精听建议:
先完整地把一条新闻听一到三遍,争取掌握大意。然后,一句一句精听,力争每句话都听明白。遇到实在不懂的地方,再听写。

下面的文本材料中空缺部分里面要填的词都很简单,不过是一些值得注意的连读或者典型的美式发音哦,有些语速比较快。试试看,你能不能全部写对?

(参考文本,欢迎指出错误^^)

"How many of you have a Facebook account? "

Facebook, it seems like almost everyone is on it and its users are about to get a 1 .

"Uh, they had a little link 2 the page, say, hey, check out the new homepage, so I looked at it . It’s a little bit better designed just in terms of usability. "

The centerpiece of Facebook is the News Feed which tells you about your friends’ activities, their photos and videos. And right now it updates about every ten to fifteen minutes. The new Facebook homepage will have a different layout and update in real time, meaning you’ll get even more information on your friends even faster.

"I applaud Facebook for trying to make everything up to the minute, everything in this world 3 ‘we want it now up to the minute’ format . So I think Facebook is really just going along with what its users want."

The change comes at the time when another social network known as Twitter is quickly becoming competition to Facebook .Twitter offers an update of what you’re doing and thinking in real time but in a more bare-bones(1) design.

"I'm realizing that Twitter actually has a lot practical uses both 4 following news and following issues that you care about in real time."

No matter which side is preferred, the appetite for sharing information is on the rise. More than one third of adults have at least one profile on a social networking website.

"No, we’re in it, we’re in it for the long run. This is not gonna change .These technologies are gonna continue to develop and they’re gonna continue to be used by, 5 ."

Facebook has made changes before, everything from privacy policies to the page itself. But despite criticism, it keeps getting more popular, and for some users, maybe too popular.

"So many people, so many of my friends’ parents are on Facebook. I even know teachers that are on Facebook, you know people that I work with are on Facebook; like it seems like a core idea at first and now it's like creepy(2) almost for people that are on it ."

"What actually bothers me is the amount of messages I get per day. I don't need to be invited to your Zombie Club or your Pirate Bashing Game."

Facebook and its 175 million members can expect to see changes on Wednesday.
