ADM is a Professional Network, describe: "Why should anyone do business with you?"
We make is easy to use SMS to communicate with customers - which is the manner that they prefer. We go beyond simple one-way alerts or auto-responders to keywords and open up SMS for ongoing, natural language communications.
"What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?"
I track all trends in mobile technology and how they will impact dealerships. I am passionate that the impact of social media for business-to-consumer relationships has been greatly exaggerated (yes, I see the irony here) and hope dealers don't waste time on the new shiny object - apps - instead of focusing on what consumers do use - the mobile web and SMS.

I think on a personal level we all know we use Facebook less and less over time and are generally bored with the experience.  According to NielsenWire the average amount of time spent on Facebook per user has gone down every month this year - dropping from 7 hours 25 minutes in January to 6 hours 20 minutes per month until they abruptly stopped making that data available.

Can you keep up with 150 Friends on Social Media?

Posted on June 7, 2011 at 11:38am 1 Comment

Think this is an interesting study on how the mind works as it relates to the potential we are in a social media bubble.  What do you think this says about the long-term future of the hard core social media users with hundreds or thousands of 'friends'?  Will they eventually cut back on friends and likes?
