I have both and don't know what I'm doing on either. So I end up doing nothing but "sharing" whatever I write - and that's it. It's embarrassing. I have "a whopping" 11 followers on Twitter! I don't even "get" what you're supposed to do. (I guess it's because I'm "old" ) The other "old" people in my life aren't interested in what I do, and my kids REALLY really aren't interested in it. It's hopeless.
Anyway, here's mine. Nobody's going want to follow me. Trust me on that.
...I actually "joined" once and posted a comment.....maybe I didn't do it right. But I stopped 'cause I've heard that a person can be charged huge texting fees without realizing it?? Does anyone know about that?
I do get e-mails once in a while saying so-and-so is "following" me on Twitter.......but I dunno what that means 'cause I haven't used Twitter again....
everything you can do on twitter, you can do on facebook. And facebook can do more. Twitter is just easier to see things from your friends and getting the word out to your friends than facebook. I am still more of a fan of facebook.
Twitter. You branch out more and make connections you would never have thought of. Facebook tends to be more clusters of people who you know and trust already.
The micro-blogging format is pretty cool once you get used to it too. The pace is snappy and if you follow the right people, you just get these fantastic (witty &/or interesting) one liners on a constant, rolling basis.
I have both but I must say its much easier to communicate with ppl via Facebook, with either facebook chat, direct message or even a wall post. Hope this persuades a couple of ppl to become "Facebook Freaks" over "Twit Freaks"
I really just use twitter to highlight articles or hubs that I like - I dont see what other use it has - FB I just dont get it - I think it is really juts for family and friends not really for writing - I could be wrong and stand to be corrected - I use Hubpages for writing and Blog for articles.....
I love both but if I was to pick a favorite of the two it would be face book.
I have about 1,000 followers on there but I find it easier to have a real discussion on facebook over twitter.kinda hard to say what you really want to say with 140 characters.
However I find twitter grate for traffic or just getting the word out, it has great business applications. even thou I have over 4,000 followers I still manage to get my message to the people I am trying to talk to. Using the DM works well when you have so many tweeting by on the main page.
I use both..still not sure the benefits of twitter and I've have my facebook for awhile for ... um...well.. games n stuff... if anyone wants to add on FB, I'm kyriana treadway, kyrianaT on Twitter. on FB if you wouldn't mind noting HP or HubPages, I'll know you aren't a FB virus.. lol
I'm using only Twitter that provide latest news in many niches...very usefull for finding fresh contents or ideas. I don't use the Twitter web interface but an Adobe Air application called Twhirl with a nice notification system.
I love twitter, and hate facebook. I don't like knowing other people's business. I got sick and tired of all the "I just had a tummy tuck," "I just got a boob job," comments all the time. Seriously, who tells people that kind of personal stuff? Twitter you don't have that kind of chat. At least I don't.
I've noticed that Facebook is a lot more user friendly than Twitter. I found Twitter hard to use and think it is really stupid that people just follow then unfollow and the connections made on twitter are just fake.
For me, Twitter works best at keeping up with my closest circle of friends who are fellow writers. As far as promoting my business, my writing and really developing friendships and networking potential, Facebook still gets my two thumbs up.
I've noticed something kinda weird, after I write something, I put it on Facebook, because I've worked hard on it, and letting everyone I know that I have written a new hub. Do they or even even disliked it or leave...
The link suggestion tool and the keyword tabs are very powerful additions to the Hp arsenal.Ive always tried to write in groups and interlink as much as possible. I also like to occasionally look back at my analytics -...
Social marketing seems to be all the rage these days. What was once just a cool way to stay in touch with your friends is now the topic of college courses and high priced seminars.Does a success story really exist where...
Finally decided to get a Twitter account (username the same as on here, if anyone wants to follow me!) Not really sure what to do or say on there though. I don't want to start posting my hubs and stuff until I've gained...
