Facebook has come a long way from it’s early days. I remember when the only way that you can could be on Facebook was if you were a college student. The first person to send me an invite was my soon-to-be freshman year roommate.
Nowadays, Facebook has seemingly become a stream of videos, memes and baby pictures. So it comes as no surprise that this social media platform is going to continue to evolve and change the way that we connect with the world and the products in it. Soon you can shop on Facebook.
Recently, Facebook has announced that they will be adding a shopping section to the site; called Shop Tab. Facebook users will be able to shop for their favorite products without ever having to leave the actual Facebook site. Now, I don’t know about you, but Facebook already is a major distraction for me when I decide to procrastinate. I am sure this is only going to make it worst, as I’ll now have a bevy of things to look through while on the site.
Emma Rodgers, Head of Commerce Marketing at Facebook had this to say about the launch of the shopping app.“We’re looking to give people an easier way to find products that will be interesting to them on mobile, make shopping easier and help businesses drive sales.”
