The first iphone was released in 2007, seems quite long ago right? But before the iphone became a huge sensation, everyone seemed to have blackberrys. For the longest time I went through 3 blackberrys. Then the iphone 4 came out and I decided to switch over to the apple side. Since then I am on my 3rd iphone(iphone 7). I guess I decided to get an iphone because all of apple’s advertising and many people were praising the iphone. I do think that since everyone had the iphone this influenced my decision to give it a try. So far, I am happy with Apple and their product. I don’t see myself with another phone other then the iphone. This shows that social media influences peoples’ opinion on a pretty important decision, what phone to spend a couple hundred dollars on. Apple puts their product on media advertisement and boom everyone wants the iphone. Social media highly influences many and can alter a person’s opinion very quickly.
