Where do you stand? Feel free to weigh in on the comments section of this post.
“I prefer Twitter over Facebook because Facebook is filled with ‘like if you do this, like if you do that.’ Not to mention it’s packed with annoying younger kids, and it’s messy. On Twitter, you can choose to not follow people who follow you so you can have more control over what you’re reading. It’s also a lot nicer and neater.” — Joey d’Alelio, 14, freshman, Cave Spring High School
“Facebook because it’s better for communication and easy to use.” — Kelsey Jones, junior, Hidden Valley High School
“Lately I’ve been liking Twitter because it’s really entertaining. You can follow really funny jokes and people.” — Anjali Patel, junior, Hidden Valley High School
“Facebook because it’s more accessible.” — Katherine Yang, junior, Hidden Valley High School
“Facebook because it’s more interesting to look at.” — Tara Loughery, junior, Hidden Valley High School
“I like Facebook better because it has better opportunities to connect.” — Laura Sowder, junior, Hidden Valley High School
