• With the aid of the various social networking sites, one can get an instant review of the products and services that are offered by the company. Earlier, people had to rely mostly on feedback forms and client testimonials but now the process has become much simpler. The whole thing is now available online.
• A major benefit of social e-commerce is when a person makes a purchase, all people in his group gets a notification. For instance, in Facebook, all people in a person’s friend list or group will get a notification if he or she makes a purchase.
