UK consumers unconvinced by Facebook commerce

Almost half of UK consumers are not interested in buying products via social commerce, such as Facebook stores, according to a study.

The study, conducted by Havas Media Social and Lightspeed Research, suggests that despite the retail industry hailing social commerce as the “next big thing”, 89% of people have not bought a single product through Facebook and 44% are not interested in doing so.

Retailers and brands including HMV, Asos, Bulldog and French Connection have all launched Facebook stores in recent months.
