Infographic on Auto Supplier Social Media Hacks Offered

Posted Apr. 6th 2016

TROY, Mich., April 6, 2016 – Bianchi Public Relations, Inc. is offering an infographic which highlights seven ways auto suppliers can supercharge their social media impact in 2016.

The infographic, which can be downloaded at, highlights key findings of Bianchi PR’s “Social Media and Automotive Supplier Habits 2.0™” Infographic Social Media Tips for Auto Suppliers(SMaASH 2.0™) study, which analyzed social media usage by the top 25 North American automotive OEM suppliers as ranked by Automotive News.

The SMaASH 2.0 study showed that suppliers made significant progress in using social media in 2015, yet still have room for improvement. The second proprietary study also showed that on average, the typical top 25 North American OEM auto supplier:

• Increased its social media following by 363 percent in the past year, to some 178,000 followers across the four most popular platforms (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube);
• Posted some 58.6 updates per month, more than double the 2014 average of 26.9 posts, across its top four platforms; and
• Doubled the number of videos it shared on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn in 2015 over the previous year.
