Facebook has ranked number 1 among all social networking sites, twitter i think is either between number 5-7. A lot has joined facebook because of its applications, even pet society has a lot of members. Twitter is a bit more simple. It gives a person an opportunity to write a short post and share it to his or her followers. What makes it exciting? You can get as much as a million followers or more. So which do you prefer? If you signed up for both, which do you use more?

hi, facebook...is number one at my working place. All of my cow workers are members there. So am I and my family sisters to, my son and my daughter. But, I have to admit to the fact, I do not like those sites. Oh, I go in there to see if my family members have something to share with me...but for the rest...and twitter...well, simple as you said, but I noticed that many, many people use that. And so do I, but I only share one post a week. I got so many other stuff working on, here online...I rather spend time here in mylot, and do other things. I wish, though, I had time for al of it...

Hi anetteh, this is really mean of me, and I don't normally pick up on peoples' typos (I probably make enough of my own, lol!) but you made me laugh when you accidentally typed 'cow workers' instead of co-workers. I'm now imagining an office full of cows, sitting at desks and typing away at the their computers!! That's cool, you made me happy, thanks!

I prefer facebook more than twitter.Though both are nice and simple,however facebook is easier and friendly user as compared to twitter.The applications on facebook can keep me logged on for hours because it is interesting and whenever i am bored,the tiny chat button on the bottom right becomes useful to me.It is like a all in one social networking...

I like both these sites. Twitter is great because it is challenging to write notes that people will follow up on, and Facebook is great for catching up with friends. I have Face book linked to my Twitter posts automatically, so the both are working together. - Derek

I haven't tried twitter , but I am liking facebook so much not just because their very nice applications but because it is very easy to use and very easy to communicate with people. I have used Friendster and comparing it to facebook, Facebook really is the winner.

if you have lots of time, facebook is ok because i think the applications are worth trying. if you have limited time to search the net, twitter is the one for you. thanks for the response!

I prefer facebook. i just don't enjoy using twitter as much as facebook. facebok has more useful features which caters to everybody. twitter on the other hand is kind of basic and it's just like a pager or a real time blog that's being dumb down. i don't think it's a good as facebook. way out of the league.

facebook is definitely more advanced and customized compared to twitter. you are right, it is way out of league. i think the strength of facebook is its applications and twitter is its wide reach. people like to have more followers for them to send a message all at the same time. twitter also gives you updated news, for example about influenza A(H1N1) virus, technology news, celebrity news and sports news

Hi there! I only have Facebook and Friendster. I haven't tried Twitter yet but I am satisfied with my Facebook and I am one of those who loves playing Pet Society. I used to play lots of other Facebook applications but got tired of the others and now I only play Pet Society and other good cause related games.

Hi there m2ponce! I use both sites. I have an account in both sites. I frequent both sites. I like facebook because of its many applications. I love the games and all the other applications. Sometimes I use twitter to update my facebook status as twitter is easier to access if I use my mobile phone whenever I am out there somewhere.

I have to say twitter only b/c I can't log into my facebook account. I have seemed to forgotten the password and when I ask them to email me a new one I never get anything from them. It sucks. Anyway. I don't really use twitter too much but I should start doing it more often.

I am on both, I have been on facebook for ages but have only recently started going on it a lot more than I did. I joined twitter a few weeks ago and I have to say I think its rubbish, all the hype about it and I just do not see the fuss at all. I guess it works for some and not for others, think I will stick with facebook for a bit longer!!

I prefer Facebook over Twitter. I have signed up for Facebook and Twitter but I use Facebook more. I will sign into Twitter once a day and that is usually in the morning and look at any messages but that is it. I will stay sign into Facebook all day and go back and check my messages there several times a day.

I use Facebook. Why the heck do I need Tweeter? I do not get it either but then again, just giving one line thoughts seems silly.
