Almost everyone participates in it.
And almost everybody that I know...old and young...rich and poor...has a Facebook page. So do my parents.
Everybody isn't into Twitter. I've been on it since 2008. Long before most had even HEARD of Twitter. I used it to communicate with my fellow blogger friends. This was before twitter BLEW UP. There are some similarites between Twitter & Facebook...buy mostly differences. Here are some observations that I've made...
Facebook - largely made up of people you know
Twitter - largely made up of people you don't know
Facebook - consists of people who you went to school with
Twitter - consists of people who you wish that you went to school with
Facebook - status update
Twitter - tweets
Facebook - long paragraphs for updates
Twitter - 140 characters
Facebook - friends
Twitter - followers
Facebook - you can 'LIKE' or 'POKE'
Twitter - trending topics
Facebook - place where people use hashtags (#) for no reason & they don't realize that's a "twitter thing"
Twitter - place where you can use a hashtag in every tweet
Facebook - friend request
Twitter - follow/unfollow
Facebook - place where people "don't understand Twitter"
Twitter - place where people "retweet" every word of their favorite celebrity
Facebook - place where people will allow co-workers to become their friends
Twitter - place where co-workers can't follow
Facebook - Mark Zuckerburg
Twitter - Jack Dorsey
Facebook - advertisements
Twitter - Thong Thursday
Facebook - if you have more than 10 status updates within an hour...you need Twitter
Twitter - if you have a desire to rant about your cause...you need Facebook
You understand now?
