Looking For A New Car???
Everyone at some point has to look for a new car. For most high school and college students, buying used is the only option which can be scary. Most people are already aware they can use sites like ebay, cars.com, and craigslist to search for used cars, but what about social media sites and blogs? If you are looking for a specific car, using a twitter hashtag can give you some results. The only disadvantage to this is that Twitter is a worldwide network, and it is unlikely the responses you will get will be from people locally.
Even if you already have a car and are looking to improve it, there are countless blogs and domains for specific cars. I have a Nissan Maxima for example, and sites such as cardomain have pictures from hundreds of other maxima owners and many of them are selling upgrade parts. It is interesting to see what other people with the same model car as you do to customize them. If you have questions about your car, you can type it in one of these domains and there is almost always responses from other owners. For example, when wiring a new headunit for my sound system, I needed help. Someone who had a similar question posted got a video response from someone with instructions which I found very helpful.
We spend so much time on social media sites everyday, but so much of the time is unproductive. This is just another way how we can use social media to improve our lifestyle.
