platforms, with different approaches, serving different needs… but
both are highly viral and are used for social networking. Facebook is
the most successful social networking website / platform and,
depending on the rankings, the 2nd – 5th most
visited website on the planet. Well down the traffic rankings list is
Twitter at somewhere around 200th on the list (see
Alexa.com for rankings).
it incresingly clear that Twitter will one day soon overtake Facebook
as the social networking champion for a number of obvious reasons…
Connections – Its much easier to add connections (followers) on
Twitter. With a click you can see 30 or more followers of any one
person and by reading a Tweet or two, determine whether you want to
follow them (and often, by custom, they will automatically follow
you… opening up exponential connecting opportunities amongst
respective followers). Additionally, Tweeps don't have to ask for
permission to follow someone, its automatic with no approval process.
Typically, Facebook friends know each other in real life… this is
not the case on Twitter.
