Brent Hoberman, mydeco founder and Executive Chairman is confident that integrating Facebook’s new Social Plugins will move mydeco.com closer to the company’s vision of a 'web 3.0' online shopping experience, blending social commerce with smart search, visualization tools and monetization of content through commerce. Brent commented “Integrating with the social graph moves online commerce up a gear; product reviews are useful, but if you can show consumers what their own friends and connections think about a product online, it becomes a much more personal experience. We see the integration of Facebook throughout mydeco.com as a big step forward in the personalization of the user experience. ”

Ethan Beard, Director of Facebook Developer Network said “mydeco.com is a great example of a retail website that’s using the social graph to provide a more personalized shopping experience. When you can see who likes a product from among your own friends and connections, it’s a powerful validation to help consumers make a purchase decision.”

mydeco and Facebook are committed to respecting user privacy and providing people with a trusted experience. As always, people have controls to manage how their information is shared. Users can set their controls from their Facebook privacy page.
