Twitter vs Facebook
Do you like twitter or facebook ? Why has twitter become more popular in a very short time, what's the speciality. Many celebrities have also joined twitter to keep there fans updated. Is twitter better than facebook in terms of marketing, simplicity, appeal and addiction.
Face book was originally designed as a private bastion for family and friends to share photos and stay in touch. For that purpose it actually works pretty well. In other words, it�s a connection medium for people you already know, or with whom you already have a connection.
Twitter, on the other hand, is designed for serendipitous conversations with both friends and strangers. The whole methodology behind tweeting is for your conversations to be seen by as many people as possible. Unless you�re sending a private message on Twitter known as a �DM� or �Direct Message� when you tweet there�s an implicit invitation for anyone and everyone to join the conversation already in progress assuming they have something of value to add. These are the specialties of twitter. That�s why I think twitter is more popular in a very short time and many celebrities have also joined twitter to keep fans updated.
And Steve smith I would say that comparison between twitter and face book is not possible. Because they both are have their specilitites
Both are most popular and best social networking website with large number of user database both website has there unique and different features that makes this website popular in all age user database. These are also good website to promote business online to get more traffic and business because on both website you can find your niche based user database.
Facebook users connect with friends, family, colleagues and other acquaintances. They use the network to share commentary, post interesting content in the form of videos and photos, and engage in activities (like polls or games).
More importantly, most Facebook connections are founded in an offline relationship. This means users tend to have a stronger blond and greater degree of loyalty. Therefore, writing for Facebook usually has more influence.
While offline relationships are possible on Twitter, they aren’t as common. Therefore, the interactions on this social network tend to be less personal.Twitter is used more as a listen exercise. Users listen in on what the target audience is discussing. That way, they can stay up-to-date on industry trends and give users what they want.
I do totally agree with raveenasen..! As this two are great plate forms to promote business twitter is much focused on discussion. And face book gives a for promoting anything for business,pics,videos and many more.
Really a very nice discussion on both social networking sites.
Nowadays Twitter is more popular than facebook..Lets i have mentioned some of tips for using twitter...
1.Its is not complicated, when compared to FB
2.Moreover, you can feel popular
3.You will get new friends around the world.
4.You can express your thoughts at any time.
5. Celebrities like any functions.
6.Traffic to blogs/websites
Facebook users tend to be more interested in keeping close tabs of family, friends, and their favorite brands by "liking" everything from celebrities to books to causes than is true for Twitter users.
Seniors are fast-growing segment among social network users -- in 2011 33% of Internet users 65 and older were on social networks and Facebook tops the list and 4% of people over 65 in the U.S. are now using Twitter. In 2009 only 13% of seniors were using social networks. This means in two years the number of seniors using social networks more than doubled.
Twitter is most popular among African Americans and Latinos. Fully 25% of online African Americans use Twitter at least occasionally, with 11% doing so on a typical day.
Additionally, Twitter use by internet users ages 25-34 has doubled since late 2010 (from 9% to 19%) and usage by those ages 35-44 has also grown significantly (from 8% to 14%).
Twitter does not bombard you with app instructions (but there are many widgets and third party services you can use to step up your game) nor does Twitter come with the same social pressure to custom design your look. A Facebook page without a profile and cover picture looks lazy and unappealing, Twitter right out out of the box looks like well, thousands of other Twitter sites - clean, simple, but just fine. And, Twitter actually allows users easier tools for a greater visual customization than Facebook does.
