Choo Choo! Asda get on the groovy 'social networking' train
Asda are getting down with the whole internet / social networking trends and launching a new site, Your Asda which they hope will become as popular as Facebook and Christianity (okay, so we made that last bit up.)
The supermarket (or ‘sperm-u-taker’ if you’re into anagrams) say the new site is part of their ongoing efforts to bring added transparency into everything they do and will give customers the chance to interact, share views and air grievances. They recently announced that customers will be able to vote on the products they'd like to see on the shelves.
A partner site for staff to use, ‘The Green Room,’ will also be launched as Asda try to make flogging everything from nappies to cream horns more of a democracy. Will you sign up to the groovy new site? Or do you think that social networking is solely the preserve of the mad and the bed-ridden? Will the fad that is the Internet even last beyond the end of the autumn? Your thoughts and feelings please. Now.
