Evolution Of Social Commerce: The Open Graph Era Provides Retailers With New Opportunities

Social shopping isn't new, but the rapid expansion of social networks and mobile applications is opening vast opportunities for retailers. It is clear that reviews, recommendations and ratings play an important role in the decision-making process of today's consumer. It is also recognized that consumers are more likely to be influenced by people that they know and trust rather than by strangers.

However this is still outside the sales process. With the advent of Open Graph, it is believed that the next generation of social commerce will be the extension of the Facebook experience at the retailer website and the integration of social media data into multi-channel customer relationship marketing (CRM) programs.
