What Is Magento Social?
It is a fact that social media is where more and more people spend their time. In the past year alone social media’s active users grew by 21 percent. Today people use social media for more than sharing personal pictures and life announcements - social media is how customers actively engage with companies. Whether people are sharing what they like, or complaining about a product, social media outlets such as Facebook have become the online hub for users to share their experiences. In fact, studies show that around 86 percent of people follow brands they like on social media. Another 75 percent of customer’s purchases can be credited to social media as well.
The number one spot for companies to go when it comes to social media is Facebook - the platform has 1.5 billion users. But to leverage the power of Facebook can be a complicated process.
