The study involved one hundred and sixty (160) respondents using questionnaire as the major instrument. After data cleaning one hundred and forty-three (143) copies of questionnaire were used for analysis with statistical tool Spearman Rank Order correlation coefficient with statistical package for social science (SPSS). It was found that there is a significant relationship between Facebook, Twitter and YouTube that significantly influenced sales growth, market share and profitability. The study concluded that Facebook, Twitter and YouTube significantly influence sales growth, market share and profitability of automobile car dealers in Rivers State. The study recommends amongst others that: Firms should make Facebook, Twitter and YouTube advertisement more catchy, appealing and trendy in order for online customers to patronize their products.
