    I need everyone's opinion . Which is better to market and get lots of traffic with quality connections.
    A twitter user with average 50,000
    or
    A Facebook user with 5000 friends

    ?

    My opinion.
    Twitter is good for search engines.
    And fb has friends of friends. It depends.
    I choose facebook. What's your opinion everyone?

    I have found twitter to be more useful than facebook. It seems like people are far less likely to click links on FB. I have had better luck with adverts rather that posting links on the feed.
    Maybe I just have the wrong targeted network of friends though...

    yeah. facebook has much younger crowds. imo.
    And for twitter alot of celebs, athletes, singers, news people etc use them to tell the world whats goin on. Twitter has alot more message post.

    I think twitter is alot more professional than facebook. At least then they don't think you are some 12 yr old trying to send them a virus by liking their page.

    Side note- do you use a url shortener to shorten your links on Twitter?
    What have you found to be the most succesful. ie not having twitter block the link and whatnot

    Well it depends. If you put cpa link in bit.ly it will show that red message. But if you put normal url from a blog site or what ever it is good. Just make sure your tweet is related to the url. and post normally not with many same links or just links.

    Although Facebook is also the most populated sites but it is true twitter has more people because of the celebrities account in it. Also you have get more traffic from it because anyone can easily gain followers than facebook.

    Twitter = more volume, less quality (traffic wise)
    Facebook = less volume, more quality
