Out of those two, Facebook - most of my real life homies and the majority of my famalam use Facebook.

There's no comparison, really- they both do different things. It's like saying which is best out of pizza and Slayer. One's better at being tasty and the other's better at metal.

Twitter is best, I can't go back to Facebook now it seems so old fashioned. Its becoming the new myspace. I really do think its starting to die off.

Facebook has become an awful site where everyone just keeps bragging that their life is better than yours, posting pictures to try and make others on there feel awful.

So it ends up you're either the one bragging and making others feel awful or you're the one feeling like shit looking at all the great times everyone else is having.

Also the site itself is constantly changing the layout and privacy settings to try and trick you into revealing more and more personal info that they can then sell for millions to advertisers. The whole thing is sick.

Both as boring and bland as each other. All the #bollocks gets on my wick.

This question comes up regularly on these forums and I still have to give the same answer. I think Facebook is all about 'me' and Twitter is more about 'us' so it's Twitter every time for me.

I don't know any of my followers personally on Twitter but they are a diverse and interesting bunch of people (mainly!) whereas Facebook tends to be more friends and family and if I need to talk to them I pick up the phone. Also, I think Twitter is much easier to use and share thoughts on events in real time.

Facebooks usefulness is very niche really. To close friends and family, I see them/speak to them/text them all the time. For long distance friends, I can email. Facebook doesn't have any feature that other technologies can't fulfil just as well. I suppose its good to see other friends pictures now and then, but its not really of any importance. There is also too much focus on user information and annoyances such as liking things for trivial reasons.

Twitter is different in that it can be very useful and interesting. Its like a personalised newsfeed for stuff you're interested in. You can build a community of like-minded people with similar interests etc in your follower list. It can be as useful as you want it to be. Yes, there is a lot of mindless rubbish on there about Justin Beiber and One Direction, but that doesn't have to interfere if the people you follow are also not interested in that stuff.

Google+, but I use all three. They do different things so its not as simple as X is better than Y.

This !

I've finally realised reading about other people's fantastic lives on Facebook is not helping my chronic depression

Don't like face book. To much crap and to many people telling everyone there business.
Twitter is boring as well.

same here. 140 characters. It's like GD chat. FB messages is ok, you can talk for ages, send links etc. FB still does all I need.

I have to laugh at people who think there has to be a "fashion" in what internet communication sites you use. They always come on threads about them and say "Are people still using ..blah blah?" like they're superior and have moved on.
