    Twitter is now doing better than Facebook. Is this true?

      It's true, Facebook is in a slump. I've used both, and feel Twitter is more refined for its purpose. With Facebook, you have to mutually accept friendship, and your content reach is limited in comparison. With Twitter, you can follow and be followed by anyone -- which means far more opportunity for engagement with people who have relevant interests. This combined with the ease of  "retweeting and hashtagging" to multiple groups at the same time makes it a great networking and marketing tool.

      Most people have both Facebook and Twitter accounts. Twitter is fast and concise, whereas Facebook's novelty is beginning to wear off. With technology and trends changing so quickly people want quick access to blurbs.

      Given how much more Facebook lets a user do versus Twitter, I would stick with Facebook from an investment POV.  Twitter is limited in many ways and is trading at nearly 3 times the Price to Sales of Facebook.

    Doing better by what parameter?

    IMHO they are both follower-based.  So the one that will do better for you is the one where you can get the most "real" followers (i.e. people who actually read and click).

      They did not say how. I just heard, (I think it was on the radio), that 'Twitter was doing better than Facebook'.
      I have never been to either of them. I heard that Facebook took longer messages than Twitter, I do not know if that has changed in any way.

        Maybe what you heard was in reference to investing in Twitter or Facebook. Twitter's stock had been doing very well since it's IPO - on an upward trend. Facebook had a rough start, dropping to half the IPO price before coming back.

    Unless you are talking about some specific kind of "doing better" it is not a question that can be answered.  They are both doing pretty good, overall.

    Twitter is gross - Facebook is at least about mutual bragging and sharing. Twitter is for groupies.

        Sorry, it's a personal thing.  I don't like to hear things on the news like, "The President tweeted his condolences to the friends and family of somebody or other."  I just don't like it as a form of communication; it's a one way street.  There is no interaction in tweeting; it seems vain and self important to make all these little celebrity announcements. 

        Using it as a news feed is fine, but as a social platform - I just don't like it.  I realize I must sound like a weirdo...

    I don't tweet, but my impression is that HubPages is Twitter for writers.  Is it as simple as that?

      Bubblews is Twitter for writers.

      HubPages is an online magazine where writers create information-rich articles and  earn money from ad revenue.  It happens to have a great writers' community where people read and comment on each other's articles and chat on forums, but all that activity is ancillary to the main purpose of the site.

    I just can't get excited about Twitter. I simply don't care enough about celebrities to active follow their lives and I appreciate the profile aspect of Facebook. It allows me to get a more complete view of how my friends and family are doing when I want to without receiving short, meaningless updates about their life.

    I'm still waiting for Google+ to take over.

    Facebook indicated in the past that a decline in younger users could impact their business. I've read several recent articles that report that younger users have indeed declined their usage of Facebook over the past year. Although those users tend to keep their Facebook accounts, they typically now use photo and video sharing sites with their friends. They are also turned off by the fact that their parents and other adults heavily use Facebook. Although it should be pointed out that one of the photo sharing sites that is popular with younger users is Instagram, which is owned by Facebook. I believe that most people will continue to have a Facebook account; however, photo and video sharing sites are definitely the popular way for younger users to post information to their friends. It remains to be seen how much that will continue into their adult lives.

    In regards to Twitter, I think it will continue to grow in popularity. However, right now it's just too limited in use for most people. I think a positive move for Twitter woudl be to somehow provide tools to group or limit who you can post a Tweet too.

    One of the problems with Facebook is that they keep on making changes on their site. Everytime they make changes, there are more problems. Now you get people sending you an email telling you that I saw your profile on Yahoo and tell you to send them your email address so they can send you more pictures. You surely know by now that is a spam and these hackers are trying to gather your personal information.  There are so many Social Media sites now and you just can't depend on Facebook and Twitter. I do know that twitter has more followings now.

      I have not appreciated any of the changes Facebook made in the last year.  They seem to degrade the site with every new improvement.

    I guess not. The only reason behind is that none of my whole class, in the exception of myself, has a Twitter account. However, they all do have Facebook accounts. Therefore, the answer was simple.
