Building a Complete List of Automotive Social Networks

Automotive Social Networks

There is a distinct taste of irony to this post. I made my feelings known about cross-posting on all of the social networks earlier this month. Now I must break my own personal rule.

This time, I have good reason.

We're trying to compile a complete list of automotive social networks. We've put together a good list but I'm sure I'm missing some, so with a heavy heart I must do the thing I prefer to avoid: post this article across all of the social networks I know.

Over the past 5 years, the automotive industry has managed an amazing transition. We were behind the times half a decade ago as an industry with many dealerships still using old technology or leaning on traditional advertising as their primary method of pushing out their message.

In the short amount of time since, we've gone as an industry from being behind other industries in internet marketing practices to setting the trend and embracing the internet as the primary method through which we market our dealerships. It has been an amazing transition and I believe we can thank the networks on the list for helping to blaze the path that has gotten us all here.

Please review the list and let me know if I'm missing any. You can comment here or email me at jrucker@tkcarsites.com with any additions.

JD, I agree, we are finding more forward thinking dealers who have the vision to understand and use these networks effectively.
Chris Costner
JD, great idea to put a list together. I too have seen a huge increase in dealers using the networks listed, sharing best practices and asking questions. I like to see all of us using each other to become better at what we do. And for those who haven't used any of these networks yet, don't be shy, everyone already there is ready to help with ideas.
Jim Bell
Great list JD. It is important to keep tabs on all of the different outlets that are at our finger tips. Yes, there is a lot of cross-posting as you have pointed out in the past, but there is also a lot of postings that aren't being put on all of the message boards and sites, therefore, we all should be a part of a good portion of them. I know that I am partial to one, but it doesn't mean that I'm not watching what is going on the other sites. Iron sharpens iron.
