Can Twitter Replace Facebook?

Twitter and Facebook can be described as two different social media platforms that use different approaches to serve its clients. Both Twitter and Facebook have become highly viral over the last few years. However, it is somehow clear that one day soon Twitter will replace Facebook as the most popular and most visited social networking site in the current digital media due to a number of reasons. Both companies can be traded through various online forex broker that offer access to NASDAQ positioning.

Interface usability

The Twitter user interface is increasingly becoming more accessible and easy to use for most digital media players. On Twitter, you can easily take a quick glance at geographic specific or worldwide trending topics, blog posts as well as other people’s tweets in a significantly shorter period of time.

Facebook, on the other hand, is continuously becoming overcrowded with ads, application requests, information feeds, photos and several other features. With all this information you are left wondering where to look as there is too much information to digest at a glance.

Accessibility to connections

On Twitter you are able to add connections, who are also referred to as followers, much easily as compared to Facebook. With a few clicks on Twitter you could view 50 or more followers and by going through one or two of their tweets you could then decide whether or not to follow them. There is also no approval process to follow users on Twitter meaning you do not have to ask for permission to follow someone.

This anonymity on Twitter encourages members to participate and interact with other users in a more detached way to discuss trending topics among other digital media issues.A Facebook friends’ list mostly comprises of friends or family that you know in real life. You also have to send friend requests which can either be accepted or declined. This is not the case on Twitter as you can follow just anybody and anyone. This is likely to open up important connections and opportunities among followers.

Member activity

The activeness of members is another key differentiator between Twitter and Facebook. Recently, most people are “joining”? Facebook but they are “using”? Twitter. This means that a majority of Facebook members are passive, in the sense that, they only visit the site when they get a friend request or just to check what people are doing. Twitter users on the other side are constantly active with members visiting the site several times a day.

Therefore, Facebook is likely to experience a large membership base of passive users while Twitter is growing at a faster rate with more active digital media users.
