Jan 04, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dspk7r/social_commerce) has announced the addition of the "Social Commerce: 2012 How Social Networking will Transform e-Commerce" report to their offering.
Social commerce is a type of online selling where consumer-to-consumer interactions enable the sale, rather than company-to-consumer interactions.
The value of the worldwide social commerce market in 2012 will be 21% larger than the value of the worldwide social networking market. By 2016 this gap will have grown to 188% as social commerce enters a period of strong growth, while social networking enters its mature phase.
It is too simplistic to regard social commerce as a fusion of online commerce and social networking. Instead, social commerce is a combination of 4 key social networking concepts and 4 additional concepts that have nothing to do with social networking. All of these concepts are explained in detail in this report.
This report contains clear, detailed definitions of the 7 different types of social commerce.
In this report you will also find detailed analysis of over 40 leading start-ups who are promoting a broad range of innovative services that are based on a number of transformational business models.
This report also contains 5-year market forecasts, very detailed market analysis and some surprising insights into the status and future direction of this key emerging market.
