[Social Media] Twitter vs Facebook Across the Web
That didn’t last too long, but soon Twitter emerged as a pseudo-social-network-competitor-thingy to Facebook and the competition heated up again. Whether or not that competition is valid is arguable since: Twitter incorporates the communication and sharing aspect of social networking but is in many ways easier defined as a microblogging news aggregation site, sort of. Still, these and many other glaring differences do not take away from the human need to compare the two and argue about them since they are the biggest “buzz in social media right now (sorry Google).

I hate 98% of opinion posts. rarely write opinion posts because they are the blogging equivalent of smoking weed.
