Some people still have not embraced e-commerce for a variety of reasons such as credit card fraud, lack of a physical store, personal information becoming public, etc. To build a successful e-commerce site you have to go beyond looking at bar graphs and “Top 10 Lists” and get details.
This week for your discussion, you will need to interview a coworker, peer, or friend and ask them to describe any ethical, social, or political issues they feel are e-commerce related.
- Before the interview, what were the top 3 or 4 issues that you expected to hear?
- Provide a summary of your findings based on your interview. Compare what you learned in the interview to what you expected to hear.
- Was there anything discussed that you didn’t expect to hear?
