It is not a surprise for people to focus on computers and tablets in this black friday holiday season, since there are so many new items in the tablet industry that which are just been rolled out. What’s unusual, however, is that because these products are so new in the market, for instance, Amazon Kindle Fire, shoppers prefer to discuss brands on social media that they are familiar with, such as the Apple iPad 2. However, it will be good to see this kind of buzz on the actual day of black friday shopping.
