    They are both excellent platforms but different in many ways, i would recommend using both especially for business.

    seems there is nothing new to add to this discussion as it's coming around to "I prefer... for business and I prefer ... for personal.

    Thread closed.

    I think that comparison is inaccurate. Apples and oranges have far greater similarities than Facebook and Twitter do. Perhaps comparing Apples and Coffee would be a more accurate comparison as they have about as much in common as Facebook and Twitter and make the fact that they serve entirely different purposes and that which you prefer at a particular point in time will depend on what you need.

    As I said, apples and oranges "are both fruits, but one is quite different from the other." Twitter and Facebook are both Social sites, but I did acknowledge that one is different from the other. In fact, my post went on to say,

    If you are using either for business promotion, you need to judge each of them on the particular merits they offer to your business, not the businesses of others. What do you expect to achieve in using Social Media for business and what tools do both of them offer that will help you to achieve your objective?
    Oddly enough, I thought I closed this thread in the post directly above yours since the thread has degenerated into "X is my favorite" and "Y is my favorite" and the OP has not returned to take part in the discussion.
