This question was phrased by the source as follows: "On these cards there are several options on how one could be active on the internet, what to do on the internet. Please organize the cards on the sheet in front of you, depending on how often you do this on the internet: use a social network, for example Facebook, Xing or StudiVZ, as a member." (original German question:„Hier auf den Karten steht Verschiedenes, wie man selbst im Internet aktiv werden kann, was man dort machen kann. Bitte verteilen Sie die Karten entsprechend auf das Blatt, je nachdem, wie häufig Sie das im Internet machen: Als Mítglied ein soziales Netzwerk, wie z.B. Facebook, XING oder studiVZ nutzen")
