Abstract

The uptake of mobile communications in Nigeria has provided a platform for consumers to communicate with brands. This survey investigated the role of social media in the five different stages of the Engel-Kollat-Blackwell (EKB) consumer decision-making process in Nigerians aged 18-35. The factors of trust, gender and region were considered. Social media was used at all the stages of the purchase decision making process. Trust appears to be influential and warrants further investigation.
