I think Facebook is better than twitter, coz it appeals to people looking to reconnect with old friends and family members or find new friends online. Facebook is user Friendly comapre to Twitter.

Twitter has limited Functionality,not all people find it useful.

In the end, both Twitter and Facebook are simply communication tools.
But, will either Twitter or Facebook become the next Google. or its just a hype for couple of years like Orkut. What do you think?

Thanks for starting this debate, Sumone2Every1.
I am on the Proposition stating that Facebook is better than Twitter.

Here are my arguments.

1. Facebook is better than Twitter because it appeals to people looking to reconnect with old friends and family members or find new friends online. Facebook is user-friendly whereas Twitter is not.

2. Twitter has limited functionality and as a result, not all people find it useful.

That's it for this round. I look forward to the Opposition's response of how Twitter is better than Facebook.

Hey buddy, I have clearly mentioned that Facebook is better than Twitter. Most of the times its hard to express within 140 characters. This is one of the reasons that I prefer Facebook toTwitter.

You have clearly mentioned that Facebook is better than Twitter. I couldn't agree more.
However, as you are on the negation side of the topic, "Facebook is better than Twitter," you are arguing the very opposite, stating that Twitter is better than Facebook.

If you would like to start a new debate with the same topic where you are on the right side, I'd be gladly willing to accept.

Ya buddy, you are right, i think by mistake i chose CON. However, will continue the debate and Iwill argue on Twitter is better than the Facebook :)

Though I like facebook,as a matter of fact,twitter is better than facebook in some cool features.
You are able to get other’stweets easily just by following them in twitter.But in facebook you must add the person as a friend to get their updates.

You don't have to waste time dealing with quiz invites and unexpected pokes and tags.

Thank you very much for the quick change of arguments with no anger. :)

Refutations

"You are able to get other’s tweets easily just by following them in twitter.But in facebook you must add the person as a friend to get their updates."

This doesn't necessarily mean that it's a good thing. By adding the person as a friend and having them accept, this ensures security and privacy. Where in Twitter you could have 'stalkers' following you around and reading everything you say, Facebook requires that the person receiving the friend request wants the request sender as a friend. Overall, Facebook has better security, privacy, and eliminates unwanted stalkers.

"You don't have to waste time dealing with quiz invites and unexpected pokes and tags."

Because this is exactly what Twitter lacks. Twitter lacks any extra functions, like games, or quizzes/questionaires, or advertisements some people might need. And furthermore, Facebook users don't necessarily have to respond to these things... They can simply ignore them. Quizzes posted on your 'wall' can be overlooked. Pokes can be removed or ignored. Same things apply for tags.

All the arguments on the Opposition side of this debate have been refuted.
All the arguments on the Proposition side still stand.
As a result, the Proposition should win.
Thank you to everyone for reading and thank you to Sumone2Every1 for being very lenient. Hopefully, we can have a debate where you are on the side you truly wish to be on. Thank you.

Conduct goes to Con. Pro abused the incredibly clear context that Con laid out, and Con was trudged ahead anyway.

Arguments goes to Pro. Sadly for Con, his arguments were easily defeated in the last round with no defenses, and his own arguments were turned against him.
