Social media around Manchester has some parts of it going on…
At restaurants you can see a lot of social media icons being used such as Follow us on Twitter or Like a Facebook page. The two social platforms are more popular than any other social platforms, which means this is the only way internationals can contacts it by. I have only seen few QR codes used within a University advertisement and magazines (couldn’t get a hang of any pictures but I do actually remember seeing them in these certain places! sorry)
By sharing information like this through social websites also explains what kind of culture around the Manchester area has from what others see about the Manchester area from other cities.
I have seen a lot of people use Check-in and also other sorts of Social platforms like ‘Foursquare’ (which I personally use my self) which is more like a feedback of the places you been to or you have checked in at so other users can see how much it is rated out of whatever and what the place is all about. This app on phones can help a person learn about the place, town, country or whatever.
This would improve and would also increase a number of buyers and traffic from all over the world.
