Resolution Media released a new report looking at social advertising trends, which found that advertisers invested 127% more in Facebook than in Twitter in 2013.

Following are some charts comparing advertising on the two, as featured in the report:

Facebook is currently trying to get more small business advertisers on board having recently set up a small business council for advocacy and product improvement. Twitter, is said to have fifteen new types of ads on the way.
