My Thoughts & Critique Of The GM On-line Newsroom

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on December 2, 2008 by mjung18

The General Motors online Newsroom serves its function very well, but I personally I find it very boring to look at. The newsroom link of the GM website is very easy to find, and the newsroom its self is very easy to navigate, but I do feel that some minor changes need to be made. First, and foremost, the screen containing the links to the different stories should be large enough to read the title of the article without having part chopped off. If nothing else, there should be a bar available to scroll left and right as well as up and down in order to read the complete title.


Aesthetically the page its self is very boring and plain, which is like nothing else on the GM website. The rest of the website provides vivid colors, pictures to attract viewers as well as enough room to view titles and links without losing additional information or pictures.

One, very nice aspect of the GM newsroom is the variety of coverage that all of the stories that are featured. I also have to give a major compliment to General Motors for the simple fact that not all of the stories featured are ones in favor of the company. The newsroom has its fair share of stories that could be seen as negative publicity towards the company, but GM is fair and ethical enough to not only publish the good, but the negative as well.
