FACEBOOKCONVERSIONBIIFacebook has a significant lead in percentage of traffic that converts to sales.

Facebook, the social giant, is the social commerce leader by a number of metrics.

Facebook doesn’t just generate more online and offline retail sales than other social sites and apps. It also beats its rivals in terms of conversions, the value of sharing, and visits.

We also outline the latest commerce efforts by leading social networks.
