1 Think before you Post!

Set an interesting problem:

Three stories about posting. There are three people involved. Sara, Miguel and Jessica.

Sara posting: 1) In the restaurant with friends. 2)Taking a course at one prestigious university.

Miguel posting: 1) Here having fun with friends and drinking beers. 2)What a day! What happens there keeps there.

Jessica posting: 1) I really love nature, that is why I am here. 2) After some time, getting together with friends.
