Not too many days back we discussed on why twitter is better than facebook. The response we generally got was both are for different cause and we cannot really compare these two social networks to each other. Nevertheless, the commentators also stressed on the point the social network that best suits you also depends on what type of business you run. However, most businesses, I reckon would like to go the twitter way as the responses they can gather is quick and in the same time they can reach out big masses with a lot more ease.
London-based Sarah Shearman of Brand Republic reported that twitter is developing a new kind of profile page for business accounts, similar to Facebook Pages.
According to Marketing Magazine,
The pages would work in a similar way to Facebook Pages, providing brands with their own space to deliver content and encourage Twitter users to follow them, claim sources.
Also the report insists that this feature would first be introduced in US; similar to twitter’s promoted trends and promoted users being introduced in the US prior to other countries. A spokesperson of Twitter confirmed that their interest in brands meant it is now looking to set up a UK office. He, however, declined to comment on specific advertising plans.
