    Default Re: Topic sentences

    A topic sentence often refers to a paragraph.
    So, in one paragraph, make a one-sentence statement about Facebook, then 3 other sentences relating to that sentence, each with its own point, then a sentence to sum up what you have said about Facebook.
    Five sentences, all Facebook, have fun!
