I'm not sure why there are naysayers on social commerce… I believe folks (B2B or B2C) will make a purchase anywhere online.

I even used to say that folks didn't go into Facebook wanting to make a purchase, but now that social commerce is established and trusted, consumers are adjusting their behavior.
