I think facebook is a better site because you can talk to friends and see what they have been up to. You are able to post funny photos and do everything that tumblr can do and more

I accept your challenge.

My main points:

1) Tumblr offers much greater flexibility in designing the basic view of your home page than Facebook.

2) Tumblr has a much higher rating than Facebook, with Facebook at 3.5 and Tumblr at 4.7.*

3) Tumblr is more focused than Facebook.

4) Tumblr is more popular with 13-25 year olds than Facebook**, and to add to the fact that teens spend more time on Tumblr than on Facebook.***

5) Overall, Tumblr is much better than Facebook.

That is very true however with tumblr you do not have the choice to talk to relatives or friends. Facebook helps to keep people together bring people together for events and alike

In addition to my other argument, I forgot to add this. "You are able to post funny photos and do everything that tumblr can do and more". That is true, but in a different way. Facebook and Tumblr can do many of the same things, yet are very different social platforms. Alright, that is about it.

Rebuttal: You in fact can communicate on Tumblr. If you go to your blog settings and allow people to message you, they then can leave you messages. You also get to choose whether your replies are private, or if it shows up on your blog*. Again, very different social platforms.

Also, "Facebook helps to keep people together bring people together for events and alike." I do admit that Facebook does have a better hand on this, but would like to point out that Tumblr is more for fun, instead of planning outside of computer events.

Arguments: Please extend all arguments since the instigator did not bother to rebuttal. Especially pay attention to #5, where I said that Tumblr was better than Facebook. My opponent said this was true, and I agree. But in all fairness, I do not think he read that part, or he just skimmed over it.
