So i dunno if this is the right forum and i dunno if there already exsists a thread like this and my memory is so bad that i forgot if i was or wasnt allowed to put vs threads in the tavern (i renember that vs threads were not allowed in video games section) soo yeah, please remind me if im doing something wrong. So as we ALL know twitter AND facebook, i would love to hear, which one do YOU like better? Let me make some points.

Twitter:
Good things: tweeting, following, drafts, picture edit, chat

Bad things: cant add people

Facebook:

I'm not using this very often (because i love twitter), so tell me what are the good and bad parts of facebook.

So you get my idea, two very popular sites, which one do you like and what new things can you tell about it?

Both, but I'm more on Twitter now, and I'm certain it's going to be outdated by next year and I'll move on to the next thing, just as I have with MSN, Friendster and Myspace.

Facebook for those filler games, and because almost everyone has it. Twitter for following interesting famous people and clubs.

I don't care, really. I don't use either and don't really want to right now.

I have never used twitter and I don't really know enough about it to say I dislike it, I just have never had any interest in it. Facebook works for me because I have a lot of friends that do not live particularly close to me so I can see what is going on with them and socialize with them more than I can in real life.

I use both equally: little to never.

Twitter I have to basically just follow people, which isn't really my thing anyways... If I were famous, I'd use it more, but that's all circumstantial.

Facebook I have basically because real-life people exist, and get annoyed whenever I don't friend them or something. I would not use it, but practically everyone knows that I'm into computers, so they'd just get confused. I know that the only people I care about would ever message me or the like, so if they tell me I missed some event they posted on Facebook, I just tell them that I never use it and they're usually okay with that. Trust me, it's simpler this way.

Email is still my favorite means of communication.

The two social media sites are not comparable. Twitter is for people who want to be updated with what other people are thinking and doing. Facebook is for people who want to connect and chat with their close friends.

That being said, I prefer Facebook.

Im mostly using twitter cuz alot of my real life friends are using it. And facebook has so much stuff, it took me about 2 minutes until i found the 'log out button'. So i also like twitter because it doesnt have too much stuff unlike facebook. Twitter doesnt have too much options which makes it easier to use. Also twitter has a mobile version. So yeah, also when someone sends me a request, and i add him, i dont get where do i have a list and have i really friended him. Facebook is very complicated, twitter is simple.

I prefer Facebook, its more organized and tidy to me.

I kinda feel that Twitter is kinda messy and I personally don't like the interface...

Anyways, I used to like the old Facebook until they switched to timeline and now do not allow a place where you can chat with a group and have to invite everybody in the group just to ask the group questions...

here's the rules for the Tavern. I think you maybe breaking a rule I'm not sure.

As for the question I prefer Facebook mainly because Twitter makes you say it in a certian amount letters.

It's not breaking a rule. It's a legit ''versus'' question.

Don't use much of either, but I used to use Facebook a lot. Have about 200 friends on there, I only regularly talk to about 10-20 of them. The others I've met once or a few times. I haven't used it as a place to talk for a few months, I occasionally hop on to check statuses, but that's it.

In my opinion Twitter looks neater, but I can't be bothered using it. I also doubt my friends have one.
