Twitter Vs Facebook: Which Is Better?

January 21, 2022 | Tim Ollason

We have looked at comparisons between Facebook and Google in the past and how their user data battle was continuing. We have also reported on how they are after each others market. Now that Twitter is becoming so popular, we wanted to look at which is the better of the two most popular websites Facebook and Twitter?

Perhaps one isn’t better than the other; maybe you like to use both simultaneously. Twitter is great for if you want to be ‘in touch’ with celebrities, sportsmen and women. But you can also use it for many other things; you can get fans reactions on events. One of the big differences between the two, is with Facebook, your audience are there because they want to be, they have to opt in by ‘liking’ you therefore you have the ability really target your audience with products and services.

Twitter is different in it’s approach, as Colette Martin over at the Forbes blog rightly says, Twitter is a wealth of information and should businesses large and small listen to the Tweets from their customers, with their positive and negative Tweets then they can learn a lot about what they are doing right and wrong.

We really liked the metaphor used by Colette Martin in her article; she says that Twitter is much like Times Square on New Years Eve, it’s noisy and open to all. Facebook on the other hand is more like a party invitation with an RSVP.

As things stand, when you look at the user base of each site, Facebook are major front runners with more than 500 million users signed up and more than half of them being daily users, Twitter has a smaller number but is always increasing in popularity.

So onto the big question, which of the two do you think is better, Facebook or Twitter? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
