Social Media and Its Impact on the Automotive Industry

With frequent updates and evolving companies, the social media boom is growing rapidly. Snap, the parent company of Snapchat, for example, recently introduced “Context Cards”. This new feature will allow users to swipe up on posts to view directions or book an Uber to the mentioned location/restaurant. Uber’s growth has given them the opportunity to explore the possibility of self-driving cars, which would drastically shake up the automotive industry. Facebook has also incorporated Uber into its platform with its “Request a Ride” feature on Facebook Messenger.

These tremendous social media companies have the funding and power to make an impact on any industry.
