Only in one aspect though

Although Facebook is a much bigger beast than Twitter, the little guy finally managed to beat Goliath. Namely, HighBeam Research announced that Twitter received much more media coverage in 2011.

High Beam Research claims that media coverage of social networks slightly favored Twitter. Twitter had 50 percent of media mentions compared to Facebook’s 45 percent.

It is said that the public nature of Twitter was the decisive factor in the battle. Truth be told, if you’re very interested in what footballers and basketball players had for lunch, and was it actually good, then Twitter is definitely the way to go. If you’re just keen on showing the world how shallow you can be, then by all means stick with Facebook.

Twitter is younger than Facebook after all.
