These words stir up conflicted emotions and strong opinions, in just about all social media users.
Not to mention, that if you dare pit Facebook users against Twitter users, there’s no doubt that it would lead to heated (being politically correct here) “debates”…
Some are fanatical about Facebook and others – Twitter. What should be understood is that these platforms are revered by their users who can not bear or even entertain the thought of a life without it.

Not to add fuel to the fire (clears throat) but according to SA Social Media Landscape 2016, “In 2015, Instagram once again grabbed headlines as a result of its growth, but Facebook shared the spoils through reaching a major milestone.
Facebook is now used by a quarter of all South Africans, while Instagram has seen the fastest growth of any social network in South Africa over the past year.”
Also, “It showed that Facebook has grown by 8 per cent, from 12-million to 13-million, and Twitter by 12 per cent, from 6,6-million to 7,4-million users.”
