Fin:Facebook的秘密小组

有一个英语软件大家肯定都知道,没错,就是Facebook。肯定有人听说过可以用Facebook加入一些小组,然后跟人聊天,提高英语口语。这种方法确实是可行的。但最近尼日利亚有这么一群妇女,利用Facebook小组做了一件大事。

It is one of Facebook's fastest growing communities and has become such a phenomenon that last week, Mark Zuckerberg asked to meet its founder. But what is Fin?

这是Facebook发展最快的社区之一,并且已经成为这样一个现象,上周,马克·扎克伯格要求会见其创始人。但是什么是Fin?

Female IN or Fin is a "secret" Facebook group that has recently clocked up over a million members, largely from Nigeria.But it's a secret that founder Lola Omolola wants you to know all about – if you're a woman that is.

Fin是一个“秘密”Facebook小组,最近召集了超过一百万名成员,主要来自尼日利亚。

The group is a sort of confessional space, where women share stories that they might be uncomfortable – or even afraid – to tell in person.

该组织是一种忏悔空间,女性可以在里面分享故事,他们可能不舒服,甚至害怕如果亲自告诉别人的话。

Now the group gets hundreds of applications for posts every day but they are managed and approved by a group of 28 volunteers.

现在,该小组每天都有数百个岗位申请,但由一组28名志愿者管理和批准。

Ms Omolola has dreams of expanding the group into bricks and mortar, providing centres where women can go to talk about their experiences in a safe space.But that may be a long way off.

Omolola女士有梦想将该团体扩大到实体,为妇女提供安全的空间让她们谈论各自的经历。但这可能还有很长的路要走。

It's something that she discussed with Zuckerberg and though Facebook haven't offered funding yet, she's still in conversation with it on how to move the group forward.

这是她与扎克伯格讨论的一件事情,虽然Facebook还没有提供资金,但她仍然在谈论如何推动小组工作。

On Mr Zuckerberg's prompt she is now focusing on promoting the message of the site – female empowerment and tolerance.

在扎克伯格先生的提示下,她现在专注于宣传这个网站的信息 – 赋予女性权力和宽容。

现在这些社交软件已经极大影响了我们的学习、生活,更重要的是我们应该利用像Facebook之类的这种软件做正确的事。
