I’ve never had a Twitter account till today as I couldn’t see what all the fuzz was about. I mean, I am pretty happy with my facebook usage, for keeping in contact with friends (aka people who I call friends but last see or contact maybe more than 10 years ago??). I am also quite comfortable with the amount of professional related networking and information I get via LinkedIn. So where’s the gap and why so many people use Twitter?
Looking at my address book, it seems: my family and friends use facebook more, my L&D and management profession colleagues uses LinkedIn more, my IT colleagues interact with each other on Google+, and consultants / business partners I’ve worked with in the past have a presence on twitter.
Still not convinced, so I let my fingers do the walking by doing a Google search of course, and found this timely article from Network World, comparing Facebook vs Google+ vs Twitter vs LinkedIn.
Twitter has its niche market, but I don’t think it’s for me.
