Hey great post.

The research on this topic is well received. Its good to see that sites like this who can be helpful for small and big businesses too. It makes sense since more users spend more time on these sites than on say google news. A good example of webmasters using social media to their full capacity is Auto Shipping Network . They have it very well integrated into their site, check them out at http://www.autoshippingnetwork.com/

Potholes have to be cared for and repaired immediately.There are so many accidents happening because of the potholes very day and they can not be neglected for life and safety.
