I have to admit I’m using more and more Facebook versus Twitter (and Google+ that I rarely use). Still love you Twitter friends and friends who work at Twitter, nothing personal
Here is why:
-I don’t know what it is, the way it works just “feels” better
-I have a feeling Twitter isn’t as viral as it used to be either
-maybe some Twitter fatigue.
-it’s less geeky, no “retweet – @mention etc” that non geeks still don’t understand
-my mother and family in south of France use it while they will never use Twitter
-tons of my friends are in the same case
-mobile apps really got better since Zuck decided to finally adopt native
-Facebook has done a great job at viral with likes, comments that re-shares to your friends, shares, location… it’s the most complete experience available
-the Twitter ecosystem is near dead and I’m still sad from their move against the apps, that doesn’t make me feel excited about Twitter much, been a while.
-it’s been a while I don’t really read my Twitter feed as I followed way too many people, it’s my fault though, I could trim it down but I’m lazy
-there is WAY too much marketing posted on Twitter while on Facebook I read the feed from my friends with much less marketing (close to none because I did not like many corporate pages)
-there are way many more conversations happening on Facebook than Twitter, I see less and less @mentions there, might totally be my fault but it’s a fact
-I enjoy posting photos on Facebook and tagging people in them, seeing the conversations started. Not much happens when I post photos on Twitter so I stopped
-using many apps when you’re mobile is a time sink, I used to open many apps on my iPhone and I’m now using less and less. Facebook is my #1 destination when I have time. I’m lazy to open more.
How about you?
