    Facebook vs. Fwitter

    okay, i'm tired of this discussion happening everywhere, so we'll limit it to this topic and not let it leak into the 3rd party apps, etc.

    please list merits/flaws of Facebook (including the app) and for fwitter (if any merits exist, that is)

    i'll go first

    facebook allows a larger history of viewing of "status" or blurbs people can write, the status comments become basically chat rooms of sorts, picture viewing is easier (espeicially on the new app)

    twitter doesn't do anything. it's like a web based sms that other people can read. and it looks like garbage!

    I think I would prefer to read your posts on twitter. I know that there are limitations to the posting, but that could also be an advantage. Unless of course you prefer to have banter and want comments back. Just my 2 cents worth.

    well facebook is more for friends, chatting up, posting funny pix, etc.

    it's a good way to keep old friends close at hand for easy access and stuff. that's what i use it for.

    twitter just seems so self involved to me.

    8:30 "i'm doing this"
    8:32 "mmm, that was fun"
    8:37 "now i'm doing this"
    etc...

    i can see how it is productive for businesses, but isn't that just an RSS feed or a blog?

    idk, twitter is going in the wrong direction IMO. just wanted to see what other people thought.

    Just my two cents but I dislike both so I will keep this on topic. I think Facebook is a better platform than Twitter. Both are pretty self absorbed but for keeping in contact with friends and what not isn't that what email/phone is about, oh wait back on topic. I think the whole SMS approach of twitter is pretty lame IMHO. Therefore, the flexibility that exists with Twitter is far superior. Just my two cents.

    this will clear it up. Twitter is a pager that tells everyone what you are doing. Facebook is where you go after you twitter and talk to everyone.
