Twitter and Facebook in the car?


While the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration works to increase awareness of the dangers of distracted driving, drivers will soon be updating Twitter and Facebook on the road.

As the Chicago Tribune reports, drivers of 2011 GM models may be tweeting and updating Facebook statuses through Onstar's voice-activated control of texts, e-mail and Web searches.

Apparently, Ford's SYNC infotainment system will not be implementing a Facebook function, although users will be able to connect to Twitter.

These are voice activated features, but does that make them safe? Or will accessibility to social media in the car increase distracted driving in 2011?
