More recently still, there was another development that served to alter the face of consumerism dramatically and that was the rise to prominence of the internet. Now, people can engage in transactions via cyberspace, meaning they do not physically have to travel to retail outlets. And mobile internet is also making its impact felt. Consumers can now make purchases online even when they are involved in other tasks. For example, while they are commuting to work via public transport, they can stock up on clothing, book holidays, buy music and so on.
