The Longest Infographic You've Ever Seen... And It's About Automotive Social Media

When a good friend of mine tried to contact me about an Infographic he was working on, I knew that it was going to be both huge and likely related to automotive. As a lead at Car Insurance Quotes, it only made sense that most of his work surrounds the car business in some way or another.

When I first saw the graphic today, I was blown away. It wasn't just the longest and most detailed automotive infographic I'd ever seen. It was the longest infographic, period.

I had been a long-distance friend of Muhammad Saleem for over a year when I first met him in person at Blogworld in 2009 right after speaking at the Driving Sales Executive Summit. I introduced him to another good friend who was working in social media at the time - Jared Hamilton. They hit it off, but Mu was not involved at the time in the automotive industry.

Perhaps he would make a good fit at the next summit? I sat on a panel with Mu at MIT last year and the exchange was extremely compelling. Here we were at the head of a lecture room in the most prestigious technical college in the world spewing on and on about social media. The topic of automotive came up and it stirred an interesting series of discussions - at the time, unbeknownst to the spectators, Mu and I had clients who... how should I say it... didn't care much for each other.

I would love the opportunity to speak with him again on a panel. Now that he's in automotive marketing, I think it would be a great fit. Jared?

Oh, and here's the infographic.
