  1. This is absolutely true in that people are extremely influenced by what others say about a product. With online shopping reviews, you don’t know if they are biased or not because you are not hearing it straight from the person, so it makes the positive seem more real. We know how influential other people’s opinions are to someone’s buying decisions, so we try to do whatever we can to make the online buying and selling experience as enjoyable as possible.

  2. When shopping on amazon, I tend to do the same thing. I'll start by sorting the item I want by highest number of reviews. I mostly read the positive reviews to see how people are enjoying the product. I often found myself being influenced by the positive reviews and not care much about any negative reviews of the product.

  3. Very true! Especially in my experience with my families and friends. We are Vietnamese and within our community, everyone know each other. When someone bought something new, you have to get it also.

  4. Pretty nice article!. I am totally agree with your stuffs about regular growing rate of doing online shopping by shoppers. Actually everybody prefer to do shop online for everything. As it's convenient and time saving way to purchase need things. I live in India and nowadays Indian peoples most prefer to do shopping online, for saving enough time, money and also energy.

  5. The economy may still be sluggish and unemployment at a stratospheric level, but you wouldn’t know it if you were an online retailer this past Monday. Cyber Monday has quickly become one of the biggest shopping days of the year and, with mobile shopping still in its early days and traffic growing by more than 200%, there is little doubt that next year’s numbers will be even more impressive. It would also be helpful if the economy begins to grow at a healthier rate and unemployment falls to a less apocalyptic level (today’s news about it falling by 0.4% is encouraging).
