Facebook has been around for some time now and it overtook MySpace back in the day. It works by you added people for which they have to accept and any posts that people do, be it a simple line of text, a video or photo’s – will appear in the time-line. It went further of later as it allowed you to put people into groups and then instead of writing a post that made no sense to work people, you can specify Family only for example.
I like to think Facebook is a big bulletin board that people you know can leave messages on detailing what they are doing, post new pictures and so forth. It is ideal for example if someone just had a new baby and everybody can get to see the pictures quickly. My question though is this – “Just what do you write on Facebook Status updates that people won’t deem boring?”
On the 20th Feb 2011 I finally created a new Twitter account and started to use it, before hand I started to use Facebook a lot more than I had before by adding a lot of people from work as well as friends and family. I thought I would pass on my thoughts on both medium and how they are working out, I would also like to get other people views on why they prefer one over another. Twitter is a limited medium in my own mind as it needs extra services such as Twitpic to share pictures and URL shortener to fit links into posts. With Twitter you only get half of the story which means unless I am following everybody on a certain list of people, I miss the tweets if I do not go to twitter account on-line and read the full flow of posts. How does this match up with facebook?
