Is Facebook Cloning Twitter?
By on March 13th, 2009

No, you did not hear it wrong and neither did acquire , it is just that the Facebook team have released a new design, which now makes Facebook resemble Twitter.

Though both these services are pretty popular, it is really surprising that Facebook will run a complete copy of Twitter, are they just too scared of losing the social networking crown to Twitter, or are they too pissed off about their failed attempt to buyout twitter?

If you ask for my opinion, I would rather stick with Twitter to send out my updates about what I am doing, Facebook is too bloated and I seldom spend more than 10 minutes on it every couple of days. If you compare both these social networking sites, twitter is the winner all the way for its simplicity and ease of use.

What is your opinion about this new redesign by Facebook? Do you think that they have lost it and are just copying from competition? Or do you think that Facebook is moving in the right path? Do let us know about your opinions.
