I think it is fair to say that commerce has always been a very social activity. Marketplaces have been a gathering place for people for thousands of years and word of mouth has always been a huge influence on what people buy. But as more and more people engage in social networking activities and platforms (1.3 billion people use Facebook every month), there is a new opportunity to provide commerce as part of people’s interactions in social networking activity.
The first ever social media scavenger hunt was a huge hit at GS1Connect! Over 100 photos were uploaded or retweeted throughout the week! Thank you to all who took part in highlighting 1WorldSync and our exciting events! Lori Bigler from Smucker’s became our first #1WorldSyncSelfie contest winner! Congratulations Lori!
We appreciate everyone’s involvement and hope that we were able to add a level of excitement and fun to your GS1Connect experience.
