Twitter vs Facebook: What’s the major difference?


[tweetmeme source=”akhilsethi” only_single=false] Twitter vs Facebook: What's the major difference?

We all know about the rise of social media tools (websites) used by various companies nowadays to promote themselves and their products to the (potential) target market. But in this short-post, I’ll not go into the intricacies of explaining the ways in which these websites are used from a business perspective, but will try to explain the ‘major’ difference between twitter & facebook from a personal angle.

Twitter, a microblogging service is about connecting with the people whom you don’t know in your real life and getting into conversations with these people.  I have only 5-6 people on twitter (from a network of around 2500) whom I know in real life. So, in my opinion, twitter is just about conversations and exchange of views from one person to another.

Facebook, a complete social networking website is about connecting with the people whom you know in real life. It’s about interacting/exchanging views/discussing with people whom you already know. There are hardly 5-6 people in my friend-list on facebook whom I don’t know in person. So, in my opinion, facebook is all about getting connected with your friends/school-mates/college-mates.

So, in your opinion, what do you think is the ‘major’ difference between the two fastest growing social networking websites? Do feel free to share your opinion! 🙂

  1. Hello,
    I’m planning to start a group of bloggers to publish e-books/e-magazine. This includes different Articles, Short stories and Photography. Your blog is very nice and I wish you could join our team(as of now 5-6 members are ready). It is a non-profit project only to publish our works and no more than that. If you are interested, contact me and I’ll pass on further information regarding this matter. clubrfz@gmail(.)com
