Hello friends,

I sure that that is an interesting question and I think that more people will choose facbook is the best for you but for me, I will choose Twitter because Twitter brings me more customers and traffic than Facebook.

What about you ? Facebook vs Twitter, which is better ?
#facebook #twitter

    Hi,
    In my opinion Facebook is much better then Twitter.
    The reason is that Facebook is popular among every age group, so you get huge audience for your product or website.

    Facebook without question.

    I still don't get why "average" people use Twitter.

    It only makes sense to me if you're a celebrity or a marketer like us trying to sell to these "average" people.

    By average I just mean average everyday people.

    You can 'find' people to follow you back based on interest. This isn't so easy with Facebook or at least the solution evades me, and the OP, according to his query.
    Yeah and how many visitors are your articles getting from those 500 followers? I'll guess it's a number between 0 and 10.

    Yes, its a little more difficult to get things going on Facebook but who cares?

    When you're getting thousands of visitors a day and making thousands per month, you won't even be thinking about how difficult it may have been in the beginning.

    You just need to accept the fact that in order to succeed, you have to learn new skills.

    Facebook marketing should definitely be one of them.

    Twitter traffic is garbage. Unless you have hundreds of thousands of real followers

    Facebook is best for driving traffic but some times your adsense get banned due to large volume of traffic from social media

    I agree it's important to learn new SEO and Marketing skills so maybe you can part with some advice as to how to achieve a popular FB page?
    I doubt it's coming from those 500 followers. It could be a combination of things from twitter.

    But I could be wrong.

    I'm just going by my own stats.

    And out of 227,000 visits in the last 30 days, Twitter accounted for a whopping 231 from 971 followers and hundreds of retweets of my posts.

    I would say Facebook hands down completely! FB is very user friendly and there are many ways that you can use it to increase your email subscribers list. You can use FB groups, Fanpages or use their CPC or CPM Models. Are you doing list building with twitter?

    Organic or paid? I think both platforms are now increasingly accurate with targeting on the paid side. On the organic side it has to be Twitter that is my preference purely because you can respond to someone's tweet and jump straight into conversation even if they don't follow you.

    For e.g. you sell SEO services and search twitter for latest genuine seo queries. It's a great way to build relationships. This just isn't possible on Facebook due to privacy settings.

    On the paid side however, the reach you can get from Facebook is incredible.

    One more thing, Twitter is excellent for PR. All the journalists are on it and very active. Just search for the hashtag #journorequest and see for yourself!

    Certainly Face Book is better than Twitter.

    I would say Facebook is #1, it has a few more advantages: For example videos. They're becoming more and more important because they can easily entertain and mostly doesn't require any efforts like understanding written words or something. Like I you can see here about facts about online video, Facebook is now number two after YouTube in terms of unique video viewers. That shows the importance of videos - and twitter tries to keep up with Vine.

    Facebook has over 1.2 billion active users, potential clients

    Twitter has only about 0.2 billion active users, from which a majority are unfortunately spammers.

    I read somwhere that, overall, 99.8 % of tweets are never read by anyone

    I don't think that Facebook and Twitter can be compared in any way. They're not even close neither by popularity, members or features. I believe Twitter has its own advantages, but I prefer Facebook.

    @quizfactz - every second thread in this part of the forum is about popularizing Facebook pages, getting more likes, fans, followers etc. but basically it is up to you to see what will work for you the best

    Hello,
    I think both are most helpful for getting traffic.
    In Facebook, we can promote our business more elaborately. Just like, we can use viewable image/videos in Facebook which helps to get better impact.

    Facebook is best due to multiple pages in one account while twitter is best due to its hash tags.

    I prefer Facebook to be the best. Not everyone and in every country Twiiter is popular. But Facebook is popular in every way. Don't spend time on Twitter rather focus on Facebook Fan page, and try to make it awesome one..
