    Twitter, just the whole idea of it beats Facebook in my opinion. It is great to get updates/tweets from shows, people, etc. Although, I barely know what Facebook has to offer.

      I like how you take it upon yourself to give your thread the 'Poll of the day' title.
      I don't use either, all social networking sites are pointless and boring imo. Bebo is only useful for trolling.

        I'd have to say Twitter. Facebook's a real time killer if you get sent a bunch of quizzes and such, but I kinda like Twitter a bit more.

        Until someone decides that it won't be free to use Twitter anymore. Then I'll prefer Facebook over the latter.

          No love for facebook?

          I don't like the whole idea of twitter. When it comes to social networking, Facebook is as connected as I want to be with my friends.

          Same here. I only use Facebook to creep on drama. I can do that here, so Facebook is pointless now. 8>

          I quit Facebook quite a while ago due to other peoples' drama/no one giving a rat's ass about me anymore (yeah that sounds rather selfish, but you try being on a site where all your friends are your IRL friends, and they ignore you entirely).

          Not long after, I joined Twitter, if only just to be able to type what I'm doing regardless of whether other people responded/cared, 'cause I liked the status thing Facebook had and not much else about it.

          Twitter is the Facebook status feature without all the other garbage, and you can make your page look nice.

            Why would you put Facebook vs. Twitter and not vs. Myspace? Makes no sense to me.

            However, Twitter beats the Facebook crap.

                  I have an account on both sites but never really use Twitter. It seems so pointless.

                    I didn't vote because I love both! Twitter makes it easier to meet people! Met some really cool people! You can't really do that on facebook

                        In my humble opinion, twitter is lame. People talk about how much 'easier' it is to use twitter to keep in contact with friends. I've never had a problem keeping up with people on Facebook. You just sign on, check in, respond to a few messages and log off. Easy.

                        To be fair, I have never logged onto twitter. But at the same time, I never will.

                          As much as some day's I hate Facebook, it serves a purpose. Twitter...ya its there. That's about it.

                          I go by the notion that if nothing is broken, don't fix it, and in my opinion facebook fits all my needs nicely. I have absolutely no need for a twitter account.

                          Facebook nowadays has been ruined by the whole invite culture. People invite me to the stupidest things - to install applications for crappy games or to do stupid quizzes or to join pointless groups. It's used more for that than as an actual medium for social networking, in my opinion. I think it's complete rubbish, but it's useful when the concept of social networking is actually put into use - I might need to contact a friend about homework or exam times etc. That's the only thing keeping me on there. I've used Twitter on and off for a fair amount of time now, and I find it useful not as social networking in the true sense, but simply in the sense of microblogging. I see interesting stuff from people like qikipedia and Douglas Coupland; I don't use it all that much to stay in touch with people. I definitely prefer Twitter over Facebook.

                            Facebook is a social networking website. Twitter is a mix between a social networking site and a micro-blogging service.

                            I use Facebook. Why? This is how I see it between the two. Facebook fits the exact niche that I'm looking for to use online - a social networking site where I'm able to communicate with my friends easily as well as catch up with old ones whom I've not seen for many years. I don't see the point in Twitter personally, why is a 140-character micro "blog" in anyway useful except in just continuously updating whatever thing you happen to be doing? If you want to blog, then get a real blog with something like Wordpress (if you want a free service). And also, I seem to notice an addiction in some people towards Twitter.. like the constant checking of the iPhone for Tweets. :\ Not good for some. I don't have anything against Twitter, but in my opinion, it seems a bit pointless.

                              Although I hardly use it, I'm going with twitter. I find it convienent if I need to get a hold of Erica or Andy... or something. Since Erica usually doesn't get on MSN anymore. So, yeah.

                              I hate face book... and myspace. Ugh. D:

                              I don't have a Facebook or a Twitter, but I do have Myspace, and Facebook and Myspace are much the same, and to be honest, I hate Myspace, so I'll go with Twitter.

                              Facebook has everything I need. You can't do wacky and random quizzes on Twitter, and that's basically the only reason I use Facebook. Besides, I know more people who use Facebook than Twitter, so Facebook is better for me to use when communicating with friends and family.
