What is Social Shopping?
Social shopping is the combination of social media and e-commerce. In essence, it is taking all of the key aspects of the social web -- friends, groups, voting, comments, discussions -- and focusing them on the world's favourite activity -- shopping -- to create social shopping.
Social shopping can take on many forms like a social network devoted to shopping, or product reviews and price comparisons. The common denominator is you. Instead of just looking at some, you are actively participating by voting on the best style or writing reviews.
