    Hi Greg – I’m really fascinated by this trend and interested to see how social shopping evolves. Mitchell Harper at BigCommerce just posted a related article on this topic – he gives some predictions for how Facebook’s Open Graph will impact e-commerce. Thought you might want to check it out:

    Well this is a good piece although Greg did miss one major item of note. There are some comparison shopping engines that actually are very involved with social shopping and have been for some time. SortPrice.com, for one, has two apps on Facebook that are growing in popularity–one for retailers to sell items and another for shoppers to build wishlists and interact with their friends on preferred items. I’d expect other CSEs to follow suit if they have not done so already.
