Social Media Influences Retail Purchases

Moms say their retail purchasing decisions are influenced by social media according to a national survey of 700 mothers conducted by Fleishman-Hillard and ModernMom.com in September. Overall 84% of mothers surveyed said they use Facebook to engage with brands, and said they should be able to give feedback to the brand, read articles with tips and advice or get a sneak peek behind the brand.

The survey also showed moms were most likely to engage with brands in the following categories:

  • 88% food and recipes
  • 86% health and beauty
  • 84% children’s products
