Social media's influence on the online shopping process continues to grow: while only 3.1% of traffic referred to e-Commerce sites came from social networks in Q1 2016, that percentage jumped threefold to 9.1% in Q1 2019, according to Adobe Digital Insights. Additionally, the share of U.S. Internet users who bought an item online after seeing it on social media increased from 23% in December 2018 to 29% in August 2019, according to Bizrate Insights.
