This is two types of social media out of the many out there and available.  The automakers of today are recognizing that the world is changing and going away from the old norm and making this the new one.  The market doesn’t really look into the papers for the information before they go to purchase a vehicle.  The use all of the different avenues for research available at the finger tips on the WORLD WIDE WEB!  Twitter allows the automakers to announce a new product, new sales promotion, or anything and it is instant access for the consumer and usually accessible directly from their pocket, on their phone.  Facebook allows the automakers to be a hub to direct them to their different brands or websites to make the sale.

    I think this is very interesting to see how the old typical advertising and media the large automotive industry use to us e is completely changing. Not only are they connecting with new buyers but they are continually updating and keeping their audience. I think this is a very good thing because in today’s world the consumer wants to know firsthand what is going on in the industry and these companies can provide information before the news get’s a hold of it. I am interested to see where this will go.
