Many businesses today use social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram to promote themselves and communicate with their customers. Two examples of the social media sites are “Bakersfield Nightlife” and “Bakersfield Fox Theater” on Facebook pages.
I found Bakersfield Nightlife page when I researched about night life at Bakersfield. This page popped up on the first page of Google. Since this has been my first academic year here in CSUB, I have no idea about places in Bakersfield; especially, the places for people to go at night. When I need information about places to go at night in Bakersfield, I look up at the Bakersfield Nightlife page. It is very helpful for people to update about events and promotions happening in Bakersfield. Most posts share hyperlinks from their original Facebook pages of these restaurants and other places. For instance, Bakersfield Nightlife page shared Bull Shed Bar and Grill’s photo. In the post, Zzyzx Road Band performed at the Bull Shed Bar and Grill on May 17th from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Some posts contain only content such as price deals of food or drinks. For example, the post shared Ink Bar-Night Club’ s status. The post mentioned about price deals for drinks during Power Hour from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The second Facebook page, Bakersfield Fox Theater is also mentioned on Bakersfield Nightlife page. The Bakersfield Fox Theater page is similar to other business pages. It contains general information such as address, phone number, business hours, etc. Recent post on the page shared a hyperlink of Babbu Maan page. He performs concert live in Bakersfield Fox Theater today at 8 p.m.
Lastly, social media sites are commonly in business world now. People who have Facebook page, Instagram page, Twitter feed, etc can get the update information right from their smart phone. They do not have to visit places to get information. Everything people want to know is on the social media sites.
