    Twitter is good for promoting something such as a blog, or a product, or a news service to a lot of people, many of whom you might not know very well. You can keep people informed of latest developments etc. but you probably aren't going to get into deep discussions with people. As a tweet reader, Twitter is great for finding out about and keeping in touch with updates, news, services, and making new contacts with people or services.Facebook, on the other hand, is best for keeping in contact with a relatively small amount of people, often family and friends and people that you know reasonably well. It is not so good for meeting or reaching people you don't know, but can reinforce existing relationships and help to keep you in contact.

    Just to add on Twitter is actually a mini blogging platform, where you can talk in general. You don't have to be specific about people products usually over twitter. Where as Facebook is pretty specific when it comes to audience. Moreover Twitter has better reach then Facebook when it comes to numbers. Precisely Social Media is all about numbers so it makes Twitter much better than Facebook. One more thing is that Facebook is pretty slow when it comes to making an impact whereas Twitter is instant. It grows in hours and you get in touch with a lot of people as well as your message reaches the masses with a single Retweet button.

    Both of them are good but i would say twitter is better. It gives you the opportunity to promote your business on a more personal level and at the same time reach out to more people than facebook.

    i think twitter is more used by the companies for the promotion of the Services in the market, as in twitter in has to come up with the best in limited scope wherein there is no limitations in Facebook it can use the wide area and features of the social media sites.

    Both have their own strategies. If the people you want to target with your campaign is only on Twitter, spend more time building connections on Twitter and the same goes for Facebook. It really doesn't matter which social media channel is bigger. The question is, where does the audience hang out that you would like to reach. Just my 2 cents.

    A good point raised here by Grobbulus. That really comes down to your target audience eventually. You certainly have to look for target market first. Saturating Facebook and Twitter won't help the cause that much. These are two different platforms. Twitter is well known for mini blogging and instant interaction whereas Facebook is for long term relations. If you talk about Reach then it's Twitter which provides you with the bigger reach. Your message manages to reach and more people with the single Retweet click.

    Twitter is a very powerful tool in business field. You can tweeted and retweeted. Face book too is pwerful because you can add photos or you tube presentation. But twitter is best

    Photos and Videos can be uploaded on Twitter as well. Though They don't show the thumbnail unlike Facebook but Twitter has the capability of providing a broader reach.
