  1. Twitter was always my first love and then the conversation seemed to stop or slow down and it was like non-stop advertising. While I still love it I tend to spend more time on Facebook lately.

    1. I will admit I do like Facebook more than Twitter, although I like that with Twitter I can "follow" whomever I wanta nd I don't necessarily have to be "Facebook friends" with them.

  2. I like both Twitter and Facebook equally. I seem to be able to reach companies more on Twitter and followers on Facebook.

    1. Twitter is a bit crazier than FB, IMO! Both are equally fun in my opinion.

      And it was great meeting you at BlogHer this week!

  8. I like the interactions on Facebook. Also Facebook never tells me I can't "like" anyone else...getting tired of Twitter telling me I can't follow anyone else!

    1. Alysia, I've NEVER heard of that! Does Twitter ever have a max # or something? I know that FB has a max # of friends, I think it's like 5,000 or something.

  10. By far, my favorite social media site is Twitter. It's fast and furious and connects me with people all over the world in just 140 characters. What's not to love?
