Facebook just isn’t the same as Twitter
Facebook is making changes to its system to keep up with Twitter
In the past, most people would turn on their computers and immediately head to their email accounts to check their inbox, but times have changed and many prefer to visit their favorite social networking site that lets you connect with friends on a little less traditional way. There are now hundreds of these websites scattered across the web, feeding our human desire to connect, communicate and learn; with the top 2 players being Facebook and Twitter. Facebook.com launched in 2004 and is now hitting the 700 unique posts per second mark, and on the other side we have Twitter, a popular new release launched in 2006, trailing closely behind with 600 tweets per second, a figure that makes old players are a bit nervous.
Facebook actually made several attempts to stop Twitter in 2008 by making an offer to buy them out of the market, but it ended in disappointment as Twitter turned it down. Additionally, Facebook has been rumored to have made many new upgrades that mimic Twitter-like features, such as their “What You Think” module, which allows members to share media content as well as links in one live feed area. There is also the new “lite” version of Facebook which was launched last year, it had an almost identical layout to Twitter’s own, but was unfortunately dropped in April this year due to lack of interest from Facebook members.
