Social Bartering

Providing personal interaction, brands exchange goods for social engagement

Implications - As networking and social engagement continues to dominate consumer behaviorism, businesses are turning to methods of online interaction to expand brand recognition in a more personal, and digitally efficient manner. Creating a platform for user involvement, brands are offering discounts and rewards in exchange for interaction on such sites as Twitter and Instagram, speaking to a shift in brand-consumer engagement towards more reciprocal, yet socially integrated methods of day-to-day interaction.
