We'd like to think that our recent review of the 2011 Ford Fiesta is the sole reason that many eager buyers have displayed interest in the vehicle, but Ford Motor Company points to another source responsible for generating all the hype. Ford says that its social media initiative, the Fiesta Movement, has been a great success.
Through the power of social networking, Ford has presented the upcoming Fiesta to millions. As the company states, the Fiesta Movement has generated more than 6.2 million YouTube views, more than 750,000 Flickr hits and nearly 4 million Twitter impressions. Now that's a lot of people to reach out to. Social networking allows companies to reach a lot of people in a very short time with most of the advertising legwork done by word-of-mouth users. The hype for the Fiesta is bordering on the excessive, but we're every bit as eager about its launch this summer as anyone else. Follow the jump for more details.
