Many blog debates have been devoted to the Pownce Twitter arguments. Bloggers are comparing the two nano-blogging services and are arguing which among the two is the best.
To give you a clear picture about the Pownce and Twitter debate, it is best to distinguish these two social networks.
Twitter is a social communication network where you can share your activities to your followers. It is also a micro-blogging tool where you can publish updates and link it directly to your blog or website. You can build a wide network of followers on Twitter and establish contacts with your online friends.
Pownce is similar to Twitter in many ways. The difference is Pownce network added a file sharing utility where you can share documents and track changes made on those documents. Pownce can be very useful not just for building an online network but also for work related activities.
So, which one will you choose? It will depend on your need. If you are a regular user of Twitter and you already have lots of followers on the network, it is unwise to jump out of Twitter. It’s tantamount to leaving your online friends if you transfer to Pownce. This is also true if you are using Pownce for a long time.
The best thing that you can do is to maintain your Twitter network and establish another network on Pownce. In this way, you are adding more friends to your list. On the other hand, if you’re not using either Twitter or Pownce, it is best to try both social networking communities.
