  15. 15. FACEBOOK ANALYSIS Snapshot of Toyota’s Facebook Page
  16. 16. FACEBOOK ANALYSIS There’s certainly a foundation here. Toyota has managed to get 661 fans, but there seem to be inconsistencies with updates with unanswered questions left by customers since August 2012. It comes off as though this social platform is not a priority, and that's definitely something to work on. Audience: With the wide variety of people using Facebook, the timeline page allows the company to communicate with the majority of it’s desired target demographics. People who “like” the page have already taken vested interest in the brand, so we can listen to and communicate easily with them. Revisions: Facebook is where Toyota should pump the bulk of information to their audience and where there is the most room for conversation and interaction. Allow users to really get a feel for the personality of the company. Quick suggestions to adopt: • • • • Take full advantage of Facebook’s multimedia capabilities. Continue posting photos and videos to keep interest up. Think more broadly about interweaving other social media platforms with Facebook to increase engagement and interactivity. Add content of interest to target different groups, and award fan loyalty. Update the page more consistently, and try to avoid surges of information.
  17. 17. TWITTER ANALYSIS Snapshot of Toyota’s Twitter Page
  18. 18. TWITTER ANALYSIS Toyota’s twitter (https://twitter.com/ToyotaTrinidad) has 4 followers at the time of this proposal — a number that certainly needs improvement. It appears that the last time there was a post to the page was January 2011. Audience: Those looking for quick updates about Toyota most likely look to the Twitter feed. Followers are most probably interested in hearing about events, deals, and photos. Revisions: Be more active on this platform as it’s an easy way to push out information about the company. Create fresh content often; Follow those who follow Toyota. Additionally, try to be more intuitive when posting information: instead of treating each one as its own community, consider that followers on Twitter may also be fans on Facebook.
