I have my Facebook and Twitter account operating from last several months. I have friends and follower on both. But with time I start feeling bored with Twitter. Twitter is where I can post what I am doing, or what I feel in one line. It is good to share what I do exact at the moment, but in a day I cannot share that I am sitting now, and standing up all day. Can you do that? I see most of celebrities just doing that they are going X- place, they are going for lunch, etc etc. What is the use of it ?
On the other hand, if I create a page on facebook, I still can put same comments there and in return my friends can comment on my individual page that are visible to all. On Twitter if I post 10 comments, I cannot see all reply in a “Group” of conversation, but on Facebook it looks better organized. Managing multiple accounts is really hard for a day to day professional, if they are not marketing with their friends.
I am also surprise by the Privacy issue that occur in those public social networking site. But I want to tell that if you are doing Social Networking, then people will learn about you. Don’t they start knowing you when you meet a strange everyday while jogging, or when you meet friend of friend of friend in some meeting or get to gathers. If you are using some public website [especially at no cost/free] you can expect them to use those information for advertise or other stuffs. Why you share most personal stuff there ? Just use it to a limit of been public or don’t go Social at all.
Anyways, Twitter needs to improve its functionality the idea was good, but with like of Facebook, myspace having their own status message with commenting and “like” feature they are more useful as compare to twitter. Twitter account is good if you link it to get auto update from all other site, other than that there is no use of it.
