Which Operating System is More Suited to Social Networking?

0 1

In the past few years people have witnessed a number of new social networking sites being created. These sites are now part of the average person’s daily routine. Computer users may be wondering which operating system will best help them satisfy their social networking needs.

The most widely used operating system on the market are Windows and Mac OS X. Windows takes the biggest piece of the market share at 90%. However Mac users generally have nothing bad to say about Mac OS X.

Both Apple and Microsoft are putting their energy into developing their social media outreach. At the present time Microsoft is outshining Apple in terms of social media. This is evidenced by the fact that Mac users can add photos to the company’s Facebook page while Microsoft users can add discussions, links, videos and special features.

Microsoft has a strong presence on many social networking sites. These sites are Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and a few other social networking websites. Apple in comparison has an edge over Microsoft in the entertainment field. However they do not have a strong enough corporate presence on sites like Myspace. Because of marketing success Microsoft Windows is the preferred operating system of most computer users.

In terms of performance the Mac OS X outperforms Windows. When it comes to social networking Microsoft is the clear winner. Many people believe this is due to the fact that Apple does not update marketing and customer outreach. They are also very secretive about the development of their products. Microsoft Windows is a good choice for those that like to use websites such as Facebook. Most games and website features are compatible with the Windows operating system. The same cannot be said for Mac OS X. Due to this users are generally more comfortable using a PC with Windows installed.
