Facebook is better than twitter for promoting your brand

Quote:

The two largest social networks, Facebook and Twitter, offer very different ways to build your brand and promote it socially.Facebook provides a better platform for publishing rich media.The essential problem with using Twitter to publish rich media like videos and photos is that you can't actually use. Facebook gives companies the ability to post videos, photos, audio and music, as well as all kinds of interactive content like discussion boards, polls, etc, all of which is easily accessible.
In my opinion facebook provide you better platform to promote your product than twitter. Facebook provide
  • Facebook provides a better platform for publishing rich media.
  • Facebook offers better, easier integration with your website.
  • Facebook offers better two-way communication.
  • Facebook offers a much larger audience.
  • Better control over content.
  • Facebook's advertising platform gives you the ability to promote your brand faster.

Where as
  • Twitter is an excellent way to hold a conversation with a single fan or user.
  • Twitter doesn't have any systems in place to do two-way communication
  • Twitter doesn't offer any tools for moderation
  • Twitter currently doesn't have any built-in advertising platform.

Both facebook and twitter got their own advertising tools and reputation. But certainly facebook is way too head than twitter. It becomes pretty effective when you advertise with Facebook advertising.

Well, I think each of this Social networking sites are cool at their own way. There are a lot of useful and cool features about Facebook and about Twitter as well, that's why I use them both in my Internet-marketing company. Twitter really brings me a lot of traffic and Facebook brings me meny new clients. We should use them as complex and then we will get desirable result. That's it

Cheers!

If i want to get most of the social network.. I don't look at features it does offer. I look to the audience I can get to. since facebook is larger and more open than twitt.. I think that it is better.
That's just my humble opinion.

In my opining both complement each other and should be used in combination.
No need to choose between those two

Yes Facebook have much more possibilities then Twitter.
However we should not ignore Twitter, we don't really know after some moment which new things will offer twitter..

I think it depends on how you promote yourself on the various platforms.

Both Twitter and Facebook have their strengths and weaknesses, so why limit yourself to just one of them? Take advantage and stay active on both and double the effectiveness of your promotional efforts.

Both Twitter and Facebook can help us promote our sites and products. But in my eyes, Twitter is a better choice because it is an open market completely.
Of course, both are useless to SEO because they don't support "DoFollow" links there.

Both have their place in the online marketing arena, but Facebook's popularity and ability to create entire pages to devote to your product or service certainly gives it an edge over Twitter. Facebook ads are also targeted and successful.

I have had luck with Twitter more than Facebook but then again it might also depend on how real/quality your followers are on Twitter.
