Abstract

Web 3.0 is considered as the new way to represent consumer buying behaviour with the help of content platforms and interactive tools that are user generated. These social interactive tools are considered as the source for many customers because it helps in searching of the information regarding the products of the buyer’s choice. The research aim is to know how these tools can effect the decision of the buyer and how the reviews gathered from the social media about the product are influential during decision.

Case study mechanism is used to understand the stages in the buying decision process in case of two technology goods. An interview is conducted with the buyer and his colleagues whom he contacted during this process. So, the tools used by the buyer to gather information are considered as the secondary data. Finally, this research states that social interactive tools are considered as the good source to collect information about the goods.
