So whats this sudden surge in traffic to both these networking services - Twitter and Facebook. Is it because of the number of people who are using the social networking has increased or an increase in the number of internet users. Both the networkng services are coming up with new integrations and new changes into them these days and seems they are in the verge of conquering the social networking market space. The increase in the number of users for Twitter and Facebook seems to be an interesting topic for now but, how long and how far they go.. This question certainly keeps ticking in my mind. All we can do now is just Wait and Watch ! :)
