“If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.” This appears to be the current motto of both Facebook and Twitter as they have joined forces to try to provide an improved social networking experience. Could this spell doom for Google+?
Facebook, which currently has over 750 million active users, will now allow users to update Twitter accounts from their Facebook accounts. This new feature will enable a Facebook user's account to update his or her twitter account, which will be linked, with every update from Facebook.
The new feature will allow users post updates on both Facebook and Twitter at the same time, and it will provide more content to Twitter. To start, the user needs to go to facebook.com/twitter and link his or her profile page to his or her twitter account.
This may or may not prove to be a danger sign for Google+, which is competing against both Facebook and Twitter, according to a PC Magazine report.
Twitter currently has only 100 million active users, and many Facebook users rarely access Twitter.
