¿Como se usa ello?

Vi la palabra "ello" en un libro que leía. ¿Podría alguien explicarme que es y darme unos ejemplos de oraciones en que se la usa?

Mira: http://www.wordreference.com/es/en/translation.asp?spen=ello

Pero, no sé cómo es utilizado por hispanohablantes, realmente, pues, estoy interesada en las otras repuestas!

Ello = it. Ejemplos...

No quiero hablar de ello. I don`t want to talk about it.

Ello no me gusta. I don`t like it.

Voy para ello. I`m going for it.

Entonces, utiliza "ello" cuando no se puede utilizar "lo" "la" o "le"? Sí no, cuál es la diferencia?

So then, do you use 'ello' when it's not possible to use 'lo', 'la', or 'le'? If not, then what is the difference?

I have lived in Spanish speaking countries for most of my life. The truth is that ello, is almost never used. In fact, I don't think I have heard it here in the past year or so. Wouldn't even recommend using it. Just use "eso" instead. Sounds much more natural.

That fits with why I was able to complete my Spanish tree and never encounter it. :) Just for reference, which countries?

Cuba(birth), Spain, Mexico and little while in Argentina. Now living in the U.S. It's been a hell of a ride.

Edit: Went ahead and asked my parents whether they had ever used "ello". They responded by saying it was grammatically incorrect. They are technically wrong, but it just goes to show the scarcity of the word.
