Apple Stock Drops Due to Low iPhone 5 Sales
Murray Newlands discusses why Apple fans aren’t thrilled with the just released iPhone 5 and sales are way below predictions in spite of lines reported to be 89% longer.
Fans are disappointed in the Apple mapping app and that is what much of the negative sentiment and online conversations discuss.
As you can see from this social media monitoring graph of social network mentions of the iPhone 5, there are almost as many negative comments about this new smart phone as there are positive.
Photo and video sharing levels were higher than usual for a product launch – which should not surprise anyone if they saw our post on Business2Community Why Your Business Needs to Be On Instagram.
Facebook fans may be surprised to see that only 4.4% of the discussions surrounding the Apple iPhone are happening on that platform.
That could be a trend to examine. Given that image sharing IS going on and you can share images on Facebook, does anyone have a theory on what so little discussion of this new smartphone is going on at FB?
