Google vs Facebook

Dr Greg Chapman

Google and Facebook are competing head to head for our advertising dollar, which is a good thing. It’s a pity that the other channels are so far behind these two behemoths who dominate because of their audience sizes. As a result, both have become expensive, unless you aren’t a mug advertiser, but there certainly differences between the two platforms.

A starting point to consider is the different natures of the two platforms. Google is used by people looking for answers. These answers could be just information or solutions to problems they are experiencing. Facebook, on the other hand, is a place where people go to socialise. So Google users may be searching for people who sell products like yours. The best you can hope for as an advertiser on Facebook is that people are talking about products like yours. More often than not, they aren’t.
