Product Manager, Instagram Shopping at Facebook
New York City, NY, US
Instagram's mission is to bring you closer to the people and things you love. To achieve this mission for our global and diverse community of over 1 billion people, we strive to build personalized experiences for each person in the Instagram community.
From the very beginning, businesses have contributed to the breadth and depth of the interest communities on Instagram and people have looked to Instagram to build relationships with businesses. In fact, 80% of people on Instagram now follow a business and these relationships have naturally given way to shopping behavior. A recent survey showed that 75% of MAP already open Instagram with the intent to shop.
People love to shop on Instagram because it's inspirational, visual-first and personalized to their passions. From finding the makeup from that video tutorial to discovering new sneakers from an exclusive drop, people love shopping on Instagram as an interest in and of itself. With Instagram Shopping, we have a unique opportunity to better serve the vast number of people who are already looking to us to shop, by leaning into these strengths while making it easier for them to discover, consider and checkout the products that inspire them all within our app.
Our aim is to provide a differentiated shopping experience on mobile that is brand-forward, entertaining, experiential and focuses on the joy of shopping, rather than just the chore of buying. By doing so, we can close a known gap in the existing mobile e-commerce ecosystem, as mobile e-commerce is rapidly growing, but is still a small portion of the massive global retail industry.
