Twitter or Facebook

Filed under: facebook, google, search engine optimization, social media, twitter — webcubic @ 2:45 pm

Past surveys show that more people prefer to use Facebook than Twitter.  The reasons vary but primarily it is because (1) the conversation thread is retained, and (2) there are more activities available than simply entering 160 character messages. Advantage Facebook.

However understand that Twitter should not be ignored.  Other surveys show that Twitter users engage with products more often than Facebook users.  Advantage Twitter.

There’s an additional reason to keep Twitter in mind.  A posting from www.lastclicknews.com reported that there are discussions between Google and Twitter a feed that would show posts from the social networking giant.  The report mentioned that Microsoft may be holding similar discussions with Twitter.

The simple summary is that posts from the social networking site would be displayed on search queries.

There are advantages to both Twitter and Facebook.  You should use whichever one better suits your needs both personally and for business.  Here at WebCubic, we use both.

  1. I link my Facebook account to my Twitter account. Then, when I say something on my Facebook wall, it automatically gets “tweeted”. I call it my 2for1 deal.

  4. We also use the feature that Facebook offers to forward some postings from Facebook FAN pages to Twitter. We’ve noticed some inconsistencies. Anyone else having similar problems?
