    if .com is available go for it . But if you are marketing your domain as a non-profit , religious etc type organization/group then go with .org .
    there is no difference from SEO point of view , it is just users remember .com more and tend to type(ctrl+enter) it when revisiting your website .

    Neither is better for SEO. Although somebody really paranoid might say .com

    Whichever suits your site brand the best.

    if you're looking for branding go with the .com makes it easier to remember, however for SEO purposes it makes no difference

    .COM for sure, that is first and standard commercial, if you are some sort of organisation then choose other.
