Hey! I want to actually practice speaking Spanish and was looking for a Spanish-speaking country's version of Facebook. Somewhere where I can meet people who are fluent in Spanish, sort out the finer points of the language, learn culture, etc. Does anyone know of a blog like this?
There is a website called Que Pasa, which is a Latino social networking site. There is also MySpace Latino.
Actually I have a friend on Facebook who is a native Spanish speaker. He grew up near Bogotá, Colombia. He and his friends "talk" in Spanish on Facebook. BUT they use the new-fangled shortcut writing, and most of the time I don't know what they're talking about. So I usually write English to them. I met this friend on the LiveMocha website. We reviewed and commented on each other's language exercises.
Thank you everyone!
Facebook is international, if you look you could probably find native Spanish speakers.
I have not used it, but http://www.livemocha.com/ was written up favorably in a New York Times article I read a while back. Here's the article: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/17/business/17novel.html?_r=2&ref=business
I persoanlly dont know, but Im sure that there is one. I think you would have to change the language of your facebook or something??? ANyways, I am spanish speaker and fluent.
