Social Media

Well, it's that time. There's just over a month until Christmas... how much shopping have you done?

Are you completely finished? If you are, know that I am envious of your skills. Haven't even started? You and I are in the same boat, my friend.

  • A peer recommendation is the leading driver of holiday shopping purchases.
  • While it isn't a surprise that Facebook is the leading social channel, the leading type of content most likely to be shared on Facebook was a digital coupon!
  • Of course Pinterest is the leader when it comes to inspiration ideas :)
  • Over 50% of shoppers use social media while they're in the store!
