Facebook for leisure, twitter for work? or…

September 5, 2010

Time to think about it…

2010 is a relatively a light year for Twitter. Twitter is not as hot as 2009 any longer. Facebook however continues to grow even with the critiques of user privacy infringement as well as the direct challenge from DIASPORA*. Twitter has not had a direct open source challenger yet. But, maybe soon?

Today, I just discovered something interesting when reading posts from Techcrunch. You know we can like, buzz, tweet, and digg the Techcrunch’s post. The number of like, buzz, tweet, and digg of every post shows some consistence.

Tweet (twitter) ~= 10 times of like (Facebook) ~= 100 time of buzz (Google) or Digg (Digg)

Techcrunch’s audience are mainly tech people, with about 2.3 Million monthly visits. Based on my finding, does this mean Twitter is more for work and business, and Facebook is more for fun? or this could also mean Twitter can be for both work and fun in the future? If the later is true, then Facebook can be really in trouble.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a fantastic job with this. In addition, the
    blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer. Superb Blog!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own
    blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
    actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems
    too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    Howdy are using WordPress for your site
    platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any html coding
    knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
