Twitter Vs Facebook for bloggers

Share it Please

If you are a blogger then you know the importance of social media sites. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Digg(and a lot more) are the primary source of traffic for any blog.It is necessary for a blogger to remain active on these sites. In this post I just want to discuss which site is better for bloggers-Facebook or Twitter.So lets try to find out.
Now the first thing is how many twitter followers do you have? 1000, 2000, 3000 or may be more. And to how many of them you communicate? 100,150,200 or may be less. Now on Facebook most of the people are having around 400-500 friends and communicate to most of them. This is where the whole story lies. People are generally of the view-

MORE TWITTER FOLLOWERS=MORE TRAFFIC FOR BLOG
But that’s not true. People receive 2 tweets per second on an average then why should they bother about clicking your link or retweet your tweet? To gain traffic for your blog via Twitter you need to communicate well with people. This is not an easy task as most of the people there won’t reply even your direct messages.
Talking about Facebook where communication between people is better, You would get a lot of quality visitors for your blog from Facebook.
Most of the people on Twitter are just to promote their business while in Facebook people want to know each other.So in my opinion 1 twitter follower=$0.01 and 1 Facebook friend=$1.
