Choosing Twitter over Facebook

Facebook has become a buy me, try me, join me, hear me, shop me, help me, add me, like me, love me, hate me, friend me, share me, request me, cause me, plead me, receive me, accept me, see me, gift me, hit me, challenge me, build me, feel me, question me, donate me site!

Yikes!

When I log on, it’s right in my face, often visually exhausting.

After joining Facebook, I was excited to reconnect with family and friends and now when I get online and sign in, I am inundated with a barrage of requests, images, suggestions of joining this club and that cause and I guess I’m just not all that interested. It no longer holds the appeal for me it once did, therefore I will be spending less time there. Don’t get me wrong, I like Facebook and will still stop buy but that is because I have blocked most of the games and gifts from posting on my page.

With twitter, there is no Farmville or other games, there are no fake gifts, hugs, flowers, drinks etc. just people sharing information and trying to push their stuff, and I don’t follow those people who push to hard.

Be Sociable, Share!

  1. Scott,
    I think it ‘s funny that there are far more ‘likes’ than Re-Tweets here LOL. I’m with you basically and I have a very short attention span. Tweet me. I just recently decided to stay on Facebook on “Quit Facebook Day” just to stay connected to some far off old pals that do not engage on any other platform. If I had to give up a social media account then FB is a goner.

  2. I totally see your point, but I must say that I’m on the opposite end of the spectrum. I see so much more ‘buy my stuff’ mentality on twitter than I do on Facebook. I guess that’s why each site seems to hold its own, different strokes for different folks.

    • Thanks for commenting Brodie. The difference I see is I follow people on Twitter after I look at their posts and decide if they are just sending spam or are actually a contributing member of the community.
      On Face book I follow friends but the friends start playing all the games and sending worthless gifts and the discussion between friends is lost among all the *** killed the boss in Mafia and I need a new pig on the farm.

      I can block the apps on Face book but every time a new app hits, I need to block that also.
