Some may find it interesting that their wallet's getting lighter dues to social media, and that's very well revealed in the 'Social Media Makes The Sale' Infographic.

A word-of-mouth marketing firm, Mr. Youth, surveyed over 4500 people and the results will drop you off your seat. A good 66% of people made Black Friday purchases due to social media interactions with brands and family. You may not realize it, but the social networking platforms like Facebook and Twitter could actually make you a shopaholic. Around 86% of users made/received a holiday recommendation and this converted into sure purchases.

Many companies will already be knowing this by now that people usually trust brands that have a social media presence. Networking platforms are becoming a must-have tool in every home. If you ever asked the question "How did I spend so much?", well, the 'Social Media Makes The Sale' Infographic does lift the blindfolds.
