Twitter Versus Facebook?


OOps, before I start my topic about twitter and facebook — I want to commend WordPress for the whole new and wonderful dashboard. I really like it!

Okay, let’s get into the topic! According to Saul Hansell from The New York Times, Facebook has walked away from talks to buy Twitter because the $500 million price tag was too high, according to a report by AllThingsD.

For Facebook to be a picky value shopper is quite a turnabout from just two years ago, when Yahoo walked away from a deal to buy Facebook largely over the price.

I don’t think that Twitter is as important to Facebook as Facebook could have been to Yahoo. But the whole thing shows how hard it is come up with a value for this sort of Internet company.

Ooh wow, what an issue that as a Twitter and Facebook user, how could I not know this. Well,
