Facebook Vs Twitter

Posted by on Feb 9, 2010 in Social Media Marketing, Social Networking, Twitter | 0 comments

Recent research conducted in the U.S. by MarketWatch indicates that teenagers and young adults aren’t embracing Twitter like they were expected to. In addition to this, the study shows that they are also losing interest in Blogging, however, they love social networks like Facebook and are engaging with said social network via ‘cooler’ hardware such as laptops and netbooks as opposed to ‘old school’ desktop PC’s. In figures the data shows: 8% of Internet users ages 12 -17 use Twitter 73% of connected American teenagers use Social Networking sites like Facebook Why is Facebook more popular than Twitter among U.S. teens? The general consensus is that Facebook is more popular than Twitter because teenagers have more time to spend on Social Networking sites where they can browse their friends’ photos and videos. On the other hand, the older generation is able to engage with Twitter conveniently from their mobile phones, and quite frankly it is a less time-consuming Social Network. So who is more likely to use Twitter? A large portion of the individuals making up the numbers on Twitter belong to celebrities and corporations. Twitter has proven itself as an especially useful platform for companies to handle customer service/complaints. Right now, analysts can only estimate how many active users Twitter has. Some people sign up for the service, and then never return to tweet after a few initial bursts of activity. Many users also sign up for multiple accounts, causing further confusion. Josh Bernoff, an analyst at Forrester Research, estimates Twitter has somewhere between 14 million and 20 million users a month. Returning to Facebook – this Social Media platform currently has a lot more active users than Twitter, with about 350 million registered subscribers. Like Twitter, it has focused on growing its user base. Its initial attempts to create a new category of social advertising fell short, as consumers protested about privacy concerns.

Posted by on Oct 16, 2009 in Social Networking | 0 comments

Social Media is here and is becoming an increasingly preferred method of communication for businesses and individuals alike. Social Media platforms like Twitter, My Space and Facebook are linking people up in ways we could never have dreamt of in the past. However, social media does require you to administrate and manage it responsibly so that it doesn’t become the bane of your existence. Here are a few things you should be doing to make your social media experience satisfying and trouble-free: Don’t add or accept requests from people you don’t know otherwise your profile will be riddled with unwanted spam.

Ensure that it is clean, relevant and not just spam that is going to irritate your followers and friends. Avoid posting all your personal information on your profile (s). Identity theft is a reality and can cost you personally and financially. Try to be objective in discussions. In other word, keep your opinions factual and unbiased as opposed to relating your personal experience and opinions in a ‘tunnel vision’ manner. An inactive social media profile is as good as none. Update and refresh your page as often as possible so people know you’re there. Un-tag yourself from any unsavoury photos or material your friends upload. Take into consideration that you probably have work connections as well as personal friends on your profile.  Recent studies show that a prospective boss often checks out potential candidates’ profiles online in order to assist their decisions so spell properly and avoid dumb-downed ‘text...
