Pownce or Twitter?

Asked by MrBlogger (382 points ) September 1st, 2008

In my opinion I like Pownce more but I mainly use Twitter since the audience is much bigger and more people are following me. What is better?

It’s all essentially microblogging, just use what your friends use. Personally, I prefer Identi.ca :)

Twitter. More likely to hit critical mass, sooner.

MrBlogger's avatar

Yeah I guess but I really don’t like how people just follow everyone else. I just ignore that most of the time and choose what I think is best.

what are they?

MrBlogger's avatar

Well they’re micro blogging sites. www.twitter.com Twitter has a nice video of explainig what it is. Click the red button saying watch the video. It will seem useless at first but its actually very handy.

Facebook.

@Mangus: That’s a point. The Facebook minifeed is essentially a twitter stream, and it goes a lot further in depth.

The UI on facebook needs serious help.

MrBlogger's avatar

Yeah I know! They tried to redesign it but its not a very big improvement. They could do Soo much better. Facebook might actually be the best social network so far! The user interface is not so pretty though.

Bri L. TOTALLY agree, while the new interface is better than the old one, they are still both horrible.

@ richardhenry – what is the difference between The Facebook minifeed and plain Facebook?

MrMontpetit's avatar

He means just that part of facebook (statuses).

Bri_L's avatar

Oh, ok. You kids and your terms.

thanks.

I second the person who said use what your friends use. My friends use Twitter, and so do I.

What demographics mainly use Twitter? Am I too old?

benseven's avatar

I have a friend who’s around mid fifties using it…

DandyDear711's avatar

@ben7 – That old, huh? I guess I’m not too old…

benseven's avatar

I wasn’t suggesting that was old, per se – but it brings the range of my friends using it from 16 – 50something, which is a nice big demographic ;)

DandyDear711's avatar

@ben – That is a nice big demographic! :-D
