It is like a h huge newspaper that is published every minute for me and only me. me.” Recap: Different Communication Styles for Different Social Settings Let’s say you go to a wedding or other social gathering where lots of people know each other. The style and tone of communication there will be more like using Facebook; communication you chat with old friends and acquaintances, mixing and mingling in an intimate manner. In this setting, people tend to feel more relaxed and “in their element”. Conversations are familiar and centred on shared experiences and connections. hared Now, when you go to a large party or social event where you don’t know most of the people in attendance, you will use a very different style of communication, more like Twitter; you want to meet people and somehow make yourself known, stand out from yourself the crowd, make an impression, self promote and make new connections. Twitter is like getting the podium and not everyone feels comfortable or knows how to stand comfortably in the spotlight. In fact, almost all of us, when first approaching Twitter, tend to use it to post useless first updates like “Going to lunch”, thinking of it as a another tool to communicate with friends, when in fact, it is more like stepping on to a stage, where you are communicating with an audience and quickly find that you need to find a voice and say quickly
    • Presentation Skills 01/11/10 Pierre-Michel Dusserre something useful and interesting or quickly lose the attention of your audience. People refer to Twitter as a mini or micro blogging platform. Conclusion: “I use Twitter as a professional networking to give me conversations with web pros, and Facebook to communicate with friends.” “Twitter for stuff within 140 characters, Facebook for stuff 141 characters and longer. None’s going to eclipse the other. They just play along real fine.” They’ll “I tend to think of Facebook in terms of connecting with my own life – my history, my past, and even my present. Twitter, for me, is about meeting people who are complete strangers to me – I personally know very few of my followers, but I know about all of my Facebook friends. Both are indispensable for me.” I hope you have now a clearer idea of the advantages and disadvantages of Facebook and Twitter and that you are going to join them, if you think you need those two simple communication tools.
