Have you ever heard the term “Social Commerce“? According to Wikipedia it is “a subset of electronic commerce that employs collaborative social media tools to assist in online purchasing and selling”. Wikipedia goes on to say “the term social commerce has been expanded to include a variety of collaborative commerce activities such as social shopping (co-browsing), collaborative purchasing (collective buying power), collaborative filtering (social recommendations), and collaborative funding (e.g. Crowdfunder).”
In many instances “Social commerce can be correlated with Search Engine Optimization as a way to build inbound links and generate user content, all of which are tools to improve a website’s search results on a given search engine such as Google“.
I like to say that Social Commerce is “Where Social Media and e-Commerce Meet”.
