I don't use either one
Other (please specify)
I don't use either of them that much, but if I had to choose, I pefer twitter more.
I find facebook easier for advertising, with the amount of mutual friends and such, getting a piece
of information across is easier and then they'll spread to their friends too.
I also wanted to say that facebook doesn't really help your social life imo.
But people say that "if you don't have a facebook account, you're pretty much dead and forgotten"
Unfortunately, that's totally true. In like half of what my friends get up to outside of school, I'm totally lost, and left out most of the time.
Of course, the pressure is forcing me to get one, but I'll delay it at least until high school is over.
Then again, FB is most probably the easiest for long-distance communication, aside phones or text messages.
I also use neither of them. I just don't like this whole cyber friendship thing.
But unfortunately it is as most of you said. If you're not in you're out, and forgotten.
I sound like I'm already a old man but I remember when I met my friends without even calling them.
I just drove/walked to our meeting place where we always were.
But nowadays every 10 year old kid needs a cellphone and being on fb/twitter/.. is essential for their survival.
At least that's how I observe this. And I do not like it.
It's good if you wanna keep in touch with your friends overseas (or just too far away)
because there are some difficulties to drop by.
I still have a dream...
that all these social network sites collapse and people notice you don't have to tell everybody everything about yourself.
that people remember writing letters can express parts of your soul that no email ever could.
That people realize friendships/relationships cannot be abandoned by just pressing a button.
But these virtues seem to be already forgotten and vanished in oblivion of our technologized society..
Nonetheless, I believe in our people. I prey on their conscience. And that even those who don't see shall guided into stone age again...
Everything got its pro and cons. If you wanna use it, go ahead.
I'll never understand this ^^
Btw I really exaggerted with all this 'I believe in our people' stuff.
I thought it might be funny.
Moreover, I apologize if my grammar and way of writing are a nuisance to you (regarding errors or whatsoever).
But as I said in my opening post, I'm also here to enhance my English skills so please bear with me
and I should really stop writing such long posts and go OT like hell... sry ^^'

well, twitter is so flurried i thought. wordless and so difficult to understand.
I like using both. Though honestly right now, I like Twitter more because of Twitter Search and how I can find people talking about certain manga series & reach out to them. I also have made several connections through Twitter as well.
Facebook is a whole other story since I have to compete with other people's News Feeds. I am contemplating on whether to use the Ads to get more people to my Fan Page.
Well now if I could pick anything, it'd actually be Google + :P Although many people still don't know about it and it's still invite only... I'm hoping people will make the transition over, I love it.
Don't quite understand the purpose of Twitter...even to this day. The functionality of Facebook and the features of it outweighs those of its competition, in my opinion.
