Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have become an integral part of many peoples life. And carmakers have also seen busy bundling their cars with these applications to make their buyers happy.
Interestingly, a recent study has found that drivers are not so keen on using these social networking applications on their cars. Instead, drivers prefer applications that can provide information on real time traffic, parking availability and weather that would assist them while driving.
Many also find these social networking applications distracting while driving. These apps are also risky to safe driving in a similar way to texting during driving. The study says that consumers are most interested in specific applications that make sense when they're driving.
Furthermore, a recent technology festival saw voice recognition system and automated crash notification topping the list of the most wanted apps in cars where in Facebook and Twitter ranked near the bottom of the list. Meanwhile, the study also found that 82 percent of car owners are ready to pay something for cloud-connected apps related to safety or entertainment.
