Facebook’s Impact on E-Commerce Saturday, May 8 2010 

With Facebook’s recent domination over the internet, I can’t help but ponder yesterday’s Mashable article discussing Facebook’s Open Graph system and its impact on e-commerce.

What won’t Facebook impact in the coming decade? They’ve taken over Google’s territory, replacing the search and link systems with their clever like button, and now stand to possibly oust Amazon as the leader in e-commerce. Yes, the latter is just speculation at this point, but all signs seem to be pointing in that direction.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not down on Facebook, more so just marveling at their ingenious marketing strategy over the last year or so.  It will be interesting to see how far Facebook’s personalization reach will extend to and how many other companies will mimic this marketing strategy.

For more information on this topic, please check out Mitchell Harper’s recent post on Mashable.

Let me know what your thoughts on this.
