facebook is more real and friendly to twitter.
Facebook or Twitter?
You might as well ask the question "coffee or a skateboard?"
Facebook and twitter are totally different applications.
Which one is better would depend on what you want to do.
I don't like Twitter either. Facebook gets my vote
yup. Mostly because I see twitter as utterly useless. Perhaps that's because I just started with it and haven't formed connections? It's just not interesting to me.
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 really don't know! I am in both, but with a small number of friends! I don't know how to increase no of friends!
I don't know how to Twitter.
...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....
HELP this dummy un-join!?
I prefer twitter to facebook. I especially like twitter search if you are looking for links to relevant subjects.
I prefer twitter.. I love to read teh tweets made by the dignitaries and the funnyliners.. Its all too much fun.. amazing how can one write the whoel story in just few words.. lol..
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.
I like Facebook more but twitter brings more traffic to my hubs
Facebook is a lot more useful but Twitter can be used for traffic. However I don`t really use either very much
I don't really understand twitter - I guess someone has written a hub about it???
Facebook makes sense!
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 was using both. But I love Facebook very much because it was very flexible in comparision of Twitter. so I love Facebook.
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 am a Twitter fan - I can reach more people. I like that Tweets get straight to the point.
I just don't "get" either Facebook or Twitter. I prefer to use private email to keep in touch.
I don't use Twitter, I don't really see the point. I don't care what celebrities are doing with their lives and I can see what all my friends are doing on Facebook.
Both work to drive traffic in general. Even though I like Facebook better than twitter, but that is my preference.
I get more traffic from posting hubs on Facebook than I do from tweeting out the same hub.
Feeding my HubPages RSS feed into Facebook 'Notes' works well for me.
I don't know how to tweet. I only bought a computer a little less then 5 years ago ! I am technologically challenged !
All right I am on Facebook and I cordially invite you all to friend me (Brian Taylor) then we can friend each other and so on. Just don't judge my you tube stuff too harshly...
I love FB but am thinking of signing up for twitter mainly for posting my hubs and new posts on my blog. I just haven't found the time to actually sign up and try to figure it out.
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 did write an hub on automating twitter this will also help you get more followers.

I prefer Facebook, but I like to keep people updated on Twitter, so I linked my Twitter to Facebook! easy...
I basically use Facebook for people I know, and Twitter for people I don't. I like them both.
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.
Facebook for personal profiles if you want to be able to do a lot (photo albums, apps, games, etc.). Twitter if you want something that is simple to update (140 characters, text, links).
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.
i don't use either...don't have a need for them...i can understand using them to promote what a person writes on HP for various reasons.
I use both facebook and twitter but use facebook more often as I find it simpler to use.
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.

Does social networking bring us closer together, or further apart?While sites like facebook and twitter enable us to share vast amounts of our lives with others in an instant, are our intereactions in fact becoming shallower?
by Helen Murphy Howell 4 years ago
Which One Do You Prefer? Google+, Twitter or Facebook?I think overall my favourite is Google+ - I like the idea of the circles and keeping some communications separate from others. But I do like the quickness of Twitter and it can be more interesting. I've never really been a great fan of Facebook...

Am I The Only One Who Doesn't Like Twitter?I have been toying with Twitter recently, and I can honestly say that I do not like it. I am wondering if anyone else out there in HubPages land feels the same way? I just don't find it appealing to watch a stream of short cryptic posts go by...

Do you spend to much time on Twitter and Facebook?
by Dee42 6 years ago
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 encouraging words? Nope...nothing....zip, zero. I'm not sure if they know...
