Of course that is not the term they use, but buying via Instagram is growing fast. “Social e-commerce is the business of selling goods online—in quantity—through people’s social networks” – quoted from this great Fast Company article, “This $360 billion e-commerce trend is huge in Asia—and it’s coming to the U.S. next.” The article describes the growth of social commerce in Asia, where is now comprises 13% of all online sales in China.
