As a result of a questionnaire survey asking, “Which SNS do you use when researching shops before going out?”, the first place was “Internet search”.

1st place: Internet search
・Search for the name of the place or what you want to eat in the search words, look at the website of the restaurant, and then decide whether to actually go there. (20’s)

2nd place: Instagram
・The thumbnail is easy to understand and easy to refer to. It is easy to see and use because it is a reference at a glance. It is also helpful from a housewife’s point of view. (20’s)
・I use Instagram as a reference because there are many people who have reviewed the store information in detail. If you add a hashtag, you will almost certainly find a shop you want to check. (30s)
・I want to see the food in the picture and the price on the menu table. You can understand the atmosphere and size of the store, and you can also see the exterior. (50s)
The second place was “Instagram”.
There were many opinions such as that it is easy to understand, that there are many pictures, so you can understand it at a glance. 3rd place: YouTube
・The point is that it is easier to find and understand than Instagram or Twitter. Since you can see it in the video, you can see in more detail what kind of place it is and what it feels like than you can see in the image, so when you arrive at the site, it is easy to understand the place you are looking for because of the atmosphere.

4th place: Twitter
・It’s convenient because you can quickly check the number of items that have arrived, items that will be added, hot-selling goods, and your favorite inventory. (30s)
・I used to look at Instagram a lot, but I feel like there are a lot of PR articles, so I’m looking at Twitter these days. Compared to other SNS, there is a lot of dry information, so I refer to it. (30s) ・Because I can know the frank impressions of people who used it, I don’t trust them all, but I think I can know the real word of mouth to some extent. (Forties)
