    Why to choose if we have the rights to use both? I apologize, I just don't see the point in comparing these 2.

    For seo purposes you want do-follow sites. If you can figure a way to tap into facebook to create leads/traffic amongst your friends and their friends, it is a good way for direct traffic.

    No offense, but have you tried using these sites for their intended purpose (i.e. which is *not* driving traffic to your website), and then, maybe, you get quality traffic in the end?

    I use both of them for my site. Social networking sites can bring traffic to your site more stable than bookmarking sites.

    You are right but on the other hand, Social Bookmarkings gives high backlinks than Social Networking sites.

    For traffic I go for social bookmarking, but finding prospects for my product, asking for opinions/ideas about my product and product promotion, I go for social networking.

    If you're up to traffic, both can be generate traffic to your site depends on how you tap it to your friends and also to their list of friend in their accounts.

    Both are useful techniques to increase your traffic. Social Bookmarking allows visitors to share quality links through public websites. This means that when a visitor likes your site, he / she can easily recommend it in his / her favorite social bookmarking portal. Social networking such as myspace, facebook, twitter and linkedin lets you add friends and join different groups to promote your business.

    Social network brought more traffic to my website and i recommand it because there are more people who want to stay in touch with the others more then to use social bookmark.

    I use them all and have no idea which one works best. Since I do them with automation, it isn't a time killer if one doesn't work.

    Social networking sites gives a lot of traffic to your website where as a social bookmarking is good in providing backlinks.

    I prefer Social Network for Gain Traffic, Just add Friends according to your Niche and Enjoy Vast Traffic While Social Bookmarking Helps you in gaining Back links ...

    For linking purposes, I prefer social bookmarking. For actual $$, social networking like facebook, twitter, linkedin, etc, makes a lot of sense. Keep in mind your market, though. Products for seniors probably won't work well on Facebook or Twitter, for example.

    Don't forget to keep testing, too, by changing ads and copy, and then monitoring your results.

    both are equally useful but social bookmarking sites are more convenient in use.

    I guess it would depend on how your going to use the site for and as well as the niche of your own site.. however, social networks like FB and twitter are easier to use if you targeted well your potential audience.. but using both social networks and social bookmarking will definitely give you more advantage in many points rather than choose one..
