Turning social hangouts such as Youtube, Pinterest and Facebook into retail hotspots.

According to futurism site, Quantumrun. com, the future of retail will be a blend of both in­store and online purchases. With big sales such as Christmas, graduation, and other special occasions advertised with an extensive electronic presence.
