Twitter Beats Facebook For Brands

While it’s an absolute necessity for brands to have a presence on Facebook, a recent study by Compete.com shows that Twitter is the preferred social network for driving purchases, recommendations and website visits.

Fifty-six percent of the people following a brand on Twitter are likely to purchase one of its products, while less than half of those who Like it would do the same. Twitter also has a small advantage over Facebook in driving website visits (62 versus 60 percent), and recommendations (59 versus 55 percent).

Facebook vs. Twitter: Purchases & Visits

When users were asked about the reasons for following or liking a brand, Twitter has the upper hand in every single category. It is definitely the most popular social network for receiving updates on future products, learning and staying informed about a company, (direct) interaction and customer service, and learning about related topics.
