Ice skating is more just skating for fun and figure skating is doing spins and jumps
Ice skating is any type of skating and figure skating is dancing on ice
Whoever put that is wrong! Ice Skating is a sport that just sums up every thing you do on ice... it is a category of all the skating activities on ice! True figure skating is like dancing and spinning (i should know i have won a figure skating Competition!) But it is just a category!
Figure skating is basically dancing on ice and can be solitary as hockey is a team game and can be played both on ice and on a field or pitch.

Figure skating is a type of ice skating. It's like asking "Is a Ferrari more popular than a car?" A Ferrari is a type of car. Ice skating includes figure skating, speed skating, ice dancing, ice hockey, any type of activity where you move across the ice on skates. So, ice skating would have more participants because it includes more activities than just figure skating.
Most people call it figure skating, but figure skating can be referred to as the more vauge term, ice skating.
