Colin wishes that he could speak to Lizzie as much as he did when she was living closer to him.

Lizzie tells Colin to sign up to a site called Facebook to help them keep in touch.

How Facebook can help

How can Facebook help Colin keep in touch with Lizzie?

The people you connect with on Facebook are known as friends.

Colin can use Facebook to connect with his friends and relatives who are already signed up.

Facebook will show Colin the things that his friends have written or added to their pages.

These things are known as updates.

Colin can also use Facebook to respond to his friends' updates and send them messages.
