Weekend Reading: Social Media and American Society

God Bless America

We are big fans of "recreational reading" here at Driving Sales. The automotive industry can envelope us in ways that prevent us from having the proper perspective on things. Sometimes, it's best to take a step back and see things the way the rest of the world sees it.

Every now and then, we all take a big step back. Whether through vacations, quick trips to the movies, or relaxing with a fishing pole or golf club, we need recharge our minds and prepare for what the automotive industry throws at us next. Sometimes, however, staying on point but with a slightly different spin is in order.

This infographic from Mashable, Fast Company, and Techi breaks down the way that America uses and is influenced by social media.
