How Social Media Fuels Cyber Monday and Where to Shop Online
Every year, Thanksgiving brings family and friends together to celebrate all that we are thankful for. But when midnight strikes after your Thanksgiving Day feast, the world’s busiest shopping days have just begun. The busiest shopping day of the year for brick-and-mortar stores is Black Friday, which was given its name because profits are typically recorded in black and losses noted in red. For those of you who would rather avoid long lines or mad dashes and prefer to shop in the comfort of your own home, you have Cyber Monday (11/28/11); the world’s busiest online shopping day of the year. It can become time-consuming trying to stay on top of all the latest deals or finding the best sales, so companies are embracing social media in a way that is two-fold. Companies can advertise their great savings and grow their fan base, while you can stay on top of the best deals from your favorite brands from any location. No more having to read circulars or perusing websites in search of them. Just login to Facebook or Twitter and you’re done!
