The Visual Du Jour – Facebook v. Twitter Demographics

A very nice graphic via Patrick Lafferty:

Quite a bit of similarities in demographics. Of course, Twitter users update their status more often because that is the point of the whole thing, hence more mobile users as it is easier to do update Twitter on mobiles than to update one’s status in Facebook.

I would be more interested in seeing whether there is more bonding social capital involved in Facebook versus bridging social capital in Twitter. Since the whole point, from the users point of view, is to connect, I would like to see more on these “digital liaisons.”
