Chevrolet Twitter

I have chosen the Chevrolet https://twitter.com/chevrolet, because I have owned nothing but Chevrolet since 1983. I have bought a numerous amount of Chevrolet vehicles and usually trade them in at around 100.000 kilometers. Presently I own  two new vehicles  and now with Twitter I can finally give feed back to the company. My first observation is its user-friendly and now I will explain in further details why its important to me.

For some one in at my age needs things to be simplified. When feed back is required it has to be made available in easy context and user-friendly. My generation purchase cars much differently than younger individuals and we want more feed back from the automotive industry. By using twitter I can access that feed back  using their  instant tweet in the comment section. First thing I notice was right at the beginning it states Chevrolet on the subject title and I do not have to eyeball the text scripture and wander the site.  Immediately I can see to the left where I can insert my comments. If I was not on twitter,  the site gave me the option to sign up immediately. Chevrolet has given every option on its tweet to get responses from the consumer in which in turn gives good customer relations. I was able to read the tweets with good clarity and find highlighted subjects pertain to my cars. I also was able to catch a few recall notices and input.

But there is one thing I did find is that there was a lot of useless tweets that made it difficult to sort out. The problem in this particular case is when I found a tweet that I wanted to read, other tweets kept pushing it out-of-the-way. I feel they should have a second site for just general mechanics and specific inputs . The problem with  Chevrolet is that they are huge company, responding to millions of customers around the world. I found the Tweets updated constantly  but tried to see if I can access past tweets.The one last note about this site that it was easy to locate the web page because all I had to do was access Google and simply write Chevrolet Twitter.

In my conclusion that the more user-friendly the site is the better results of communication can be accomplished.  Better customer relations and company feed back is a major part of business and its success. I am very enthusiastic that I did discover this website and it has open doors to future endeavours.

My View On Social Media

Social Media

This is my first introduction to social media. I did not know what social media was but after being introduced to in my class I now realize I have been immersed into the concept for a few years. It definitely has its many uses and tools of   necessity. It can also be cost-effective if used in the right application.

 

Pinned ImageI mostly use you tube has my social media tool for all applications of my life. I watch all videos on music ,real life situations.and demonstrations than can assist me for everyday  activities. I have just came to the concept of word press and its usefulness to my life applications.I am into radio control airplanes and I like to see a demonstration of a certain aircraft and get familiar with its flight characteristics . It has saved me a lot of headaches and possibly loosing an aircraft  and the cost of it. It has allowed me to see videos on house renovations and vehical maintenance. When a certain event has just previously happened I can access it immediately and see what I missed. People can watch what I put on you tube in order to get feed back such as family events. I find it user-friendly especially in my generation where we do not want things to be complicated. I am very particular in cost effectiveness  and like to use social media to off set the cost on my internet. I can access certain entertainment even when I do not have the right information to obtain it. It allows a broad use of centering key information so that you can find the subject or lead you to the subject that you are searching for

.

In conclusion social media is the new tool for the user-friendly person who is trying to get information on the network. It can be applied to all generations and a lot of thought has went into it. Social media are obviously going to be expanding and its here to stay.

Big Bad Blogs 93.7 FM radio

I found this Section in the internet and was very intrigued. I did notice how the blog site threw itself at me. It definitely shows a sport like atmosphere and caught my eye immediately. It has good colour contrast and flows in to a smooth contrast. It allows the eyes to formulate and read the advertisement in context.Its very simple and user-friendly. 

The blog is based on a Sports FM 93.7 and AM 850.http://bigbadblog.weei.com/. I found the blog is user-friendly and for some one like my self  who lacks computer skills was able to probe through the blogs.  I noticed that the blogs were very informative and up to date. The picture context was clear and concise with no fading abstracts that I did notice in other blogs. It was also user-friendly in going into other blog subjects and being very informative. I found the blogs gave good constructive criticism . The advertisement was limited as to not clutter the blog format. I also realized that he gave a news format to keep you up to date on tha latest sports news and trivia.

In conclusion I would like to say that if all blogs were presented in this manner it would make people with lesser computer skills more confident in internet blogging. Most individuals in the entertainment of sports are limited in their computer skills and want to apply themselves to easier advertisement.
