Why Twitter And Not Facebook

Twitter and Facebook is the largest social media when seen from the number of users. Many users use social media with their own purpose. And for a company or businessmen they will use it to promote their product.
Personal user or company for recently, they will use both social media. If they have Facebook, they will also have Twitter. So what is the advantage of both Social Media, why not only use or pick one. On Facebook you can have a photo album, complete profile page, and even you can make a fan page if you have many friends or costumers. But on Twitter, no photo album, no complete profile page, no fan page, it just an account and you time line.
yep..Twitter is more simple, way more simple than Facebook. On my opinion, this is make Twitter more reasonable to use for several users. And so for several company, artists, and other public figure.

Technology made to make our life much simple, and so do Twitter, simplicity on twitter have made ​​reasonable grounds for use by Integration, group or personal. Twitter more reality, no fake, no long-winded comments and not complicated. It just straight to the point.

Twitter users also can search what hot on internet fast, Twitter’s popular topics one of Twitter weapon to help the users to find what they need. Twitter also has no limitation on how many friends/followers you will have, but on Facebook, it will be not more than 5k. As the way out, you have to make a fan page, that you can handle millions of friends. A status that you made in Facebook can only commented by your friends with a limited comment, not in Twitter, as long is it is fit on 140 characters, it can sustainable. And don’t worry if it is more than 140 characters, there are third party apps can make it short, and still readable. On Facebook you update your status with words, on Twitter you share ‘Keywords’. Confused? Well it’s simple. Twitter is searchable by not only twitter users but by search engines like Google. Not only can someone on Twitter search follow and converse with you about ‘Smoothies’ or ‘Blueray discs’ when you simply type the word into your tweet, your content is search-able by Google spiders too. Endless possibilities when your content is on the super highway for all to find.
And don’t forget also the technology of using hashtag in Twitter, that help much on connecting with someone else.
On Twitter, you can easily meet with new people, but not in Facebook.

So this is several reason why Twitter si more reasonable to use than Facebook.

How Indie Band Promote Their Music

In general, there are two types of the musicians on selling their music. First is the musicians already sign a contract with major label, and the second is for the band that still or stay on indie label.
We don’t talk about the major label for now, there’s not much interesting thing to talk about in major label.

Being an indie label band is not easy, its more difficult than how people can imagine. From making their own music, record it, mastering it, mix, sell and promote the music all must be fone by them self.

If you ever visited my heavy metal news website named epidemicnation.com, most of the band that i ever wrote their articles are indie bands. And most of them will stay on indie.

For some reason, major label can not accept their music, and the other reason is, their music is not comercial, and the major label can not sell their music.
In my opinion, creativity it doesn’t mean comercial. Comercial thing is something to sell to public, but creativity not always have to sell. Sometimes it is more expensive than money can buy.
But for indie bands, of course they have to sell their creativity in music, this is just to keep them alive, to continue their creativity.
Major artists will not care too much about promoting their music, their label already handle it, but how about the indie band.
Indie label must have the good idea on promoting their band and music.
One thing is much easier for snd indie label to promote their band and music is by using social media.
Facebook and twitter is still the top priority to make a promotion. The other place is just like myspace, reverbnation, bandcamp, and lot more.
Indie artists or indie bands must have an ability to interact with their fans through social media, they also have to honest to web admin, web editor or contributor.
There are lots of webzine write articles about an indie band, and it usefull to promote theirself. It give much benefit to the band itself.
But if the banf avoid using social media, where else the band to get known. Local radio station seems like only have limited listener, l8csl tv station, is almost impossible to show them, but social media?? Its unlimited, they can have new fan everyday.

For What Purpose

Do you use social media?, maybe this question is a right question if you asked for about 15 years ago, for today question, it supposed to be “What social media do you use?”.
That some explaination regarding those two question. 15 years ago, there’s just small number of person using social media, company not using social media for selling or promoting their business, people not using social media to connect each other. But now almost every company put their social media account beside their contact page, magazine always add Facebook Like or share buttons and also “tweet this” button for every of their post. That’s means their realize there’s more than 60% people using social media for now.

For business person or a company they will use the social media for their business purpose, but what about for a personal person? is it just for keeping get in touch with somebody else or there’s another purpose?

This article actually based on my latest post.

Make social media as what it is, share something good, useful, important, and just a true stories.

social media is a place to socialize, promote something, but not for “Show Off”.
