    With the recent launch of the Hashtags on Facebook, do you think that Facebook will crush Twitter?

    I don't see very much connection (competition) between the two. For me, Twitter is way more useful when it comes to advertising. Facebook... I am still trying to figure out what the real purpose of it is. My wife likes it, because she enjoys sharing photos and other stuff with her friends. I don't care about sharing photos with my friends, I see it as a waste of my time. I need something that will help my business grow, and Twitter, as of now, is way more helpful in that.

    Thanks, it´s interesting..
    Personally I think that from a Business view even if both have the ´hash tag´ option, the two have a different utility.
    Okay, both can be used to recruitment (hash tag, groups...).
    But, Twitter can be used to announce quick news, contents to the audience.
    And Facebook can be used to communicate in a more friendly way with the audience.

    I have asked the question to know your opinion guys and to enrich ideas concerning these two Social Networks.

    Sure I agree, but with Facebook you can have through the groups the contacts of people who share the same interest (interest link to your business for example...) And then you can send directly messages to them...
    With Twitter you can´t send direct messages to people (excepted if they follow you) and this concept of group doesn´t exist.

    So I guess this is a good asset that Facebook has, is n´t it?

    No that will not happened as most of the world has moved on to sharing their thoughts and ideas that nobody cares about on Twitter. Facebook is mainly used to connect with old friends, become apart of fan pages with others who share your interests and for promoting services and products. Twitter will not die because its simply too popular with the vanity inside it's users.

    That they're two completely different services and can't really be compared.

    As mentioned above, FB and twitter are two completely different service. Twitter belongs to the "Micro-Blogging" category while Facebook belongs to the "Networking" category.

    Personally, I think that twitter is great for promoting your business,while Facebook is great for socializing and catching up with friends.

    Hashtags are great tools for finding interesting conversations. Facebook hashtags works differently from Twitter maybe because twitter measures trending topics while Facebook doesn't acquire that yet. It is easier to utilize hashtags on twitter because you can really see almost every conversation that uses specific tags. Promotions work more on twitter when it comes to this tool.

    Yes as the hash tags have just started to be used on Facebook I guess they are less useful than on Twitter..Because people don´t really use it yet.

    Definitely not. I still think twitter is a way better marketing tool. The followers seem to be more active and I get better results.

    Facebook and Twitter are two different tools and I don't think Facebook hashtag is going to beat the hashtag that Twitter has. People spend more time on facebook for socializing purpose and I think it may be a good platform for political discussion rather than for marketing purposes.

    I don't think so. As some of you said before Facebook and Twitter are completely different. Many people use facebook only to be in touch with friends, whereas twitter's only purpose is to share news, ideas,etc. That's why twitter can be very useful for advertising.
