Facebook vs Twitter

May 23rd, 2014

This article cracks me up, although not as much as the Facebook haters in the comments.

The article got me thinking about a topic I’ve been mulling over writing about. I don’t want to offend any of my readers with differing opinions, but I love Facebook and I just tolerate Twitter. There, I said it.

I know it’s super trendy right now to hate on Facebook, or delete one’s profile altogether, and hang out on Twitter instead, but I just don’t get it. I can’t have a real dialog with someone on Twitter and as such I don’t find tweeting as fulfilling socially. I check Twitter daily, but mostly to keep an eye on breaking news and local events. Honestly, I wouldn’t be devastated if Twitter went away.

Facebook, on the other hand, is where I live and breathe. I know what my friends and family are up to, can read interesting articles they share, exchange ideas or just reminisce. I can showcase my photos and chat with people who, without Facebook, I probably wouldn’t be in contact with at all. So it irks me a bit when people go on and on about how Facebook is a waste of time and Twitter is so much better. It’s not. At least not in my world. But maybe in yours. And that’s cool, but I think there’s room for a few social networks without it turning into a mac vs pc debate.

Oh, and there’s still Google+ out there too, which I really don’t mind much, but tend not to use since most of my social circle is on Facebook.
