Facebook vs Twitter
Last updated: March 05, 2018
Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. Users must register before using the site, after which they may create a personal profile, add other users as friends, exchange messages, and receive automatic notifications when they update their profile. Using Facebook at Work employers can create separate log-ins for employees to use with their Work accounts, or users can link these up with their other profiles to access everything in one place.
Twitter is an online social networking and microblogging service that enables users to send and read short 140-character text messages, called "tweets". Registered users can read and post tweets, but unregistered users can only read them.

2015 - Facebook At Work is not a LinkedIn killer - a new advantage over Twitter
When Facebook promised to create an enterprise product Facebook at Work last year we expected it to be a LinkedIn competitor, but it turns out that it will be just another enterprise internal social network in already crowded space. The product (that is now launching in testing phase) puts Facebook head-to-head with the likes of Microsoft’s Yammer, Chatter, Slack, Convo, Socialcast and others. It would work much like Groups and public profiles do today. The platform will retain much of the current Facebook look and feel including the News Feed, groups, messaging and events. Employers can create separate log-ins for employees to use with their Work accounts, or users can link these up with their other profiles to access everything in one place. Facebook At Work’s app is now available for download in the iOS App Store (Android coming soon)
