More from Compete, my favorite blog of the moment: Social Addicts: How do Hardcore Facebook, MySpace and Twitter users differ?
Lots of good graphics and charts. But here’s the bottom line:
Comparing the three, some really compelling trends are visible. While it’s not shocking that sites like twhirl.org (a site that offers “tweet” enabling software) rise to the top of the list, some of the others show that these users are most interested in socializing.
MySpace addicts are somewhat vain – focusing heavily on establishing and fine tuning their online personas by customization of their personal profiles Facebook addicts focus more on engagement – interacting with applications, music and people both on and off the platform Twitter addicts are most interested in fostering communication and exploration – sites that allow a user to understand what their contacts are doing, provide a platform for content discovery and encourage users to actively participate are the most likely places to find hardcore twitterers.
