I did an informal Twitter post last night, just for fun. “Facebook vs. Twitter. Discuss.”. To me, they are two Internet age apps and that’s the only reason they’re similar. Like I told my old pal Gary yesterday, comparing Twitter and Facebook is like comparing a hammer and a screwdriver. Both of them are tools, too, but you can’t be a builder, carpenter, or general repair person without both. They serve two completely different functions. Granted, my Twitter posts appear on my Facebook page (thanks to my FriendFeed account), but that doesn’t really open up the two for comparison.
Anyway, Facebook won, 8 to 1. I was the 1.
I’ll post the next topic for discussion here shortly. Please feel free to continue discussing this topic in the comments section.
