Do you update your social statuses more often from your phone or your computer? Any particular reason why?


----------------

As I mentioned a few days ago, my mobile Twitter client of choice is Echofon. I also have the generic Facebook app on my phone, though I don’t use it very often. To me, Twitter lends itself much better to mobile access than Facebook, since the service itself is so streamlined. Facebook just has a lot more going on – not to mention that the mobile client itself isn’t so hot – yay for the Twitter development community!

So I update Twitter almost exclusively from my phone (just because that’s usually when I’m checking Twitter) and Facebook almost exclusively from the web (ditto). Of course, I also know tons of people who are on Facebook pretty much all day, so they must be using their phones – because otherwise they’d never leave the computer screen!

So do you update your social statuses more often from your phone or your computer? Any particular reason why? Are you like me and it has to do with the quality of the mobile apps, or just how you use those services?

  1. Since I’m unemployed I do almost everything from the computer, and when I’m not near it the only thing I do by phone is Twitter (tweeting, twitpics) since it’s a lot easier. Especially since my phone isn’t really ideal for internet access.

    I hope to get a new phone in a couple months that will have apps or something so I’ll have better access to other things when I’m on the go and in need of something more than texting 542-542 for help.

  3. I loathe typing on my cell phone’s touch screen, so I do it from the website more of the time, or my iPod Touch’s apps.
