There was an eagerness on part of both the automakers and social networking sites, like Facebook and Twitter, to have social media options installed in an in-built way within cars for drivers to be connected on the way, round the clock essentially. However, a recent report by the technology consultant, Gartner, said that car owners are not interested in such an idea or facility as yet. However, what car owners have showed their interest in are real-time weather information and automated crash notification, which would be real help when on the road.
Facebook and Twitter provide a great platform to remain connected and share with their friends and followers all that they want. Even drivers have been reported to have gone against the rule of road sense, while texting or tweeting while driving, which is utmost fatal. But sensible and safety conscious drivers have gone against the idea of having these facilities made official by being provided with such social media outlet from within their cars.
Drivers are interested in driving-related apps to be installed, which is the best that automakers would do. It would also help car insurance companies too as safety on the road would definitely increase. Having to know as a driver with a help from an app where parking is available or where there is more hectic traffic ahead on the road, or where there are heavy-duty vehicles or some accident that had occurred, all of this would really help increase drivers and passengers safety.
