GM announced the launch of newly revamped OnStar vehicles, set to feature Facebook applications, speech to text systems and an app store all at your driving disposal. Due to the increase in text-related car accidents, text to speech enables the driver to easily speak as the system writes and sends with ease.
After the completion of Facebook testing, this application allows OnStar vehicles to read Facebook statuses and stay connected on the go.
Implications - The 21st century marks a time when social media serves as the dominant medium of communication for almost every member of society. Products that enable consumers to access different mediums of online socializing in eccentric places will likely return successful profits.
