There are 3 solid reasons for a B2C businesses to use Facebook over Twitter. First, Facebook has no limits on comments or posts. Twitter only allows for 140 characters. Messages have to be kept short (lots of fun for creative copywriters using the platform for promotion). Second, Twitter isn’t the most “social” piece of a social media strategy out there. With Facebook, you can directly invite friends or share content, like pictures or videos, very easily. Third, Facebook provides valuable analytics that go way beyond Twitter’s follower count.
