Whether you own a retail business or are just interested in online shopping behavior, a recent Social Media Today post is worth reading.

Apparently, about 167 million people shop online using their smartphone, and on average, each one spends about $1800 annually. That’s not the only statistic you should get to know: “Fifty-one percent of online shoppers would consider social media sites as credible sources for information about a product or service they are interested in. When it comes to location services, 33% of smart phone users have shared their location with a retail company, whereas 62% of those who don’t have location-based services hope to have those functions on their phones.”

You can learn even more about shopping from smartphones and how social media fits into this by reading Social Media Today.
