Martha Stewart Says She Likes Twitter More Than Facebook

Which Do You Like Better: Twitter or Facebook?

Who's the social network whipping boy this week? Facebook. Yesterday, Bill Gates admitted that he had been so overwhelmed by friend requests when he joined that he gave up on it.

As if on cue, media maven Martha Stewart took Facebook to task as well, and taking the opportunity to cite her real networking face, Twitter. She said:

I just love it so much more than Facebook. First of all, you don't have to spend any time on it, and, second of all, you reach a lot more people. And I don't have to "befriend" and do all that other dippy stuff that they do on Facebook.

Girlfriend has a point. In fact, I've had a lot of previously Facebook-addicted friends recently cop to all but abandoning it because they'd gotten so into Twitter.

I still spend equal amounts of time (occupational requirement), and I do honestly love them the same — but what about you?

I only have twitter to follow a bunch of famous people who actually twitter quite a lot, like Martha Stewart, Eddie Izzard, Stephen Colbert and David Lebovitz. I enjoy reading their tweets a lot. Other than that, I don't see the point of twitter. It's EXACTLY the same as the facebook status updates.

they are completely different and therefore i use both for different reasons. i would not abandon either. now if you said facebook or myspace then i would choose facebook. but only because you can't make it as ugly as myspace got.

Other than my blog. Twitter is the only social networking site I use online. Unless you count GeekSugar of course. I hardly spend any other time on anything else for it to count.

Facebook. Our school is small (about 600-700 people, pre-K-12, including staff), so Facebook is really useful for announcing events to people who don't go to lunch, and for RSVPing. It's also really good for keeping in touch with people who move away/go off to college, and for sharing pictures. When I found out exactly what Twitter was, my first thought was, Why would anybody do that? I don't want to know what you're doing every moment of every day; I don't really care, and I don't want strangers "following" me.

I evenly split my time with both.

I tried twitter but never got into it. Mostly the people I know only use facebook. I prefer it as well.

I like both. Twitter, for me, is more impersonal. I use it to get updates and news, for communicating as my online persona and for keeping in touch with 'online acquaintances'. Facebook is my real self.

I like both & use both but I am probably on Twitter more often. It's convenient from my phone and the internet. Twitter Search is just genius, you can find out about anything on there. It's also become my #1 news source as well.

I never considered this site social networking at all. I viewed it more as a simply designed "forum". But yeah...I would get into social networking if I could stand to put some potentially damaging things out there. I might also do it if it was really more about "friends" -- which in my opinion, it's not. When it really comes down to it, it doesn't serve me a purpose. I'd rather see you at work, in school, or hanging out. I don't want to read your "status updates", which no one really cares about anyway. I'm positive people don't want to know when I take a pee or where I am headed.

Facebook definitely beats twitter, at least what you say you are saying it to people that know you.

twitter is kinda niche. I see facebook as my hub - the center of all my internet activity.

one is for posting what's on your mind and the other one is for posting what you're doing. I love both equally.

I use them in very different ways. Facebook for friends and family, Twitter for work and Mac stuff. Although I help people with their Mac stuff in both places ;-)
