    Hey

    Is this correct, if I wanna say: Finally you got your new picture on Facebook that you haven't gotten it since a very long time?

    No, it isn't correct. I understand the first part, but I don't understand what you are trying to say in the second part.

    Re: Hey

    Welcome to the forums.
    Please give your threads meaningful titles ("Finally you got your new picture" or "Facebook post" for example.)
    Please do NOT use fake words like "wanna."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I mean, you haven't got a new picture since a long time. grammatically true?

    OK. I see you finally have a new picture on Facebook. The old picture was up for a very long time.

    Learn the difference between "true" and "correct". Write full sentences please.

    You haven't had a new profile picture for a really long time.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    And "Hey" is neither an appropriate title for your post nor a way to request a response in this forum.
