Facebook is the stronger of the two.

It is simpler and from a user interface perspective has much less clutter. Twitter is a far better social networking tool, as it allows its users to randomly find other users with specific interests – if someone twits about a subject they are obviously interested or involved with that subject matter. I’m running a digital guidebook business for outdoor adventure locations, and have found Twitter to be a very useful tool to link with like minded individuals and companies. http://twitter.com/VirtualOutdoor

Twitter has a 140 character limit and, as far as I know, doesn’t moderate people’s tweets. But yes, they are also wildly different. Twitter is just a subset of Facebook’s functionality (and user base).

Facebook allows many things, Twitters only allows 45 characters or less. Twitters only allows what they want you to says and nothing more. To much control on what you say.

Note that I almost missed the question — it hard to spot that question in the post above, broken up over 3 lines and wrapped around one of the pictures! :)
Ideas:
– bold the question itself, so it stands out more
– pose the question at the very beginning of the post, while you still have the attention of the reader (your target readers here are Facebook/Twitter users – people used to reading 140 character status updates, not 140+ word posts)
– ask the main question once again at the end and remind the reader his/her input is desired
