    hi all!
    If you have to choose one of the following:
    a) Myspace
    'b) Twitter

    which one would you choose and why?

    This question has been asked numerous times. And time and time again I think everyone agrees that, IT DEPENDS. It all depends what your company goals are, what you are hoping to gain from using these sites and how they will benefit your site.

    Exactly, and apparently. Though, they keep laying off chunks of its workforce.

    Facebook and Twitter are typically the mediums of choice for promotion these days. Even if they are just used to link to a longer blog post on the organization's website.

    Ya, and Myspace tried to do something when they released their new layout, but that just closed the door for them even more.

    A lot of people still use Myspace, but not as much as Facebook and Twitter.

    Personally, Twitter hands down.

    Not that many though - are people still using it to market though? I know it was a good way to get music out, but then again, it started losing popularity.

    No one uses Myspace anymore, those people have migrated to Facebook. I dislike both Facebook and Myspace, but I love Twitter.

    Although Myspace seems dead, Twitter can't really be compared to Myspace. I would say it's because the activities provided by Myspace vs Twitter. Twitter couple a char's and your done, unless you read other posts. Myspace has groups/games/videos/profiles etc... Its more user oriented... at least it was before it turned into what it is now.

    I won't say that myspace is better than twitter nor i will say twitter is better than myspace. Around 4 years ago, myspace was the best social networking site globally but now there are only spammers. In the same way, twitter was having only genuine users 2 years ago but now 40% users are fake and just participating for the sake of spamming. After a year or 2, Both will be same.

    Ya, I remember when Myspace was popular - and all the help sites were generating thousands a month. What do you think Myspace become so unpopular over the years?

    They're both different social media networking sites... Facebook vs. Myspace would be more relevant.. Anyhow.

    Twitter, by far. Myspace is so spammy and outdated. Gross. If I wanted to be bombarded with cleavage and uncontrollable video players popping out everywhere, I don't know.. I'd go download a virus.
