Facebook vs Twitter?

In all honesty, who gives a fuck?

I have both Facebook and Twitter, but I use them for two totally different reasons.
Facebook I mainly use to socialise with friends, and to waste away time when I should be doing University assignments.
Twitter is what I use to keep up to date with what my favourite celebs or actors are getting up to. Nothing more, nothing less.

I find it pointless when I see people arguing about which is better, or why one is better than the other.
In my opinion, they're both as bad as eachother. Both are as addictive as eachother, and both manage to waste several hours of mine, and lots of other peoples days.
Not only this, but they've brought a whole new branch to crime, discrimination and bullying. As if there wasn't already enough of this?!

Both do have useful points to them, but at the end of the day, we managed alright before them! Why can't we go back to the days before Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, when people actually talked to eachother, rather than having IM convo's?

This all sounds a little hypocritical coming from me, especially considering i've got Facebook and Twitter open while I write this, but i've been thinking over the past few days, maybe I should have a digital cleanse.
Stop going on Facebook for several hours during the day, and do things more constructive and intellectual, or cultural, like reading.

Maybe one day soon we'll all be able to break the shackles that social networking has bound us in.

  1. Facebook is better for talking to friends. Twitter is better for making friends.
