“Women are really using social networks to help build their identities,” said Samantha Skey, chief revenue officer at SheKnows. “They’re looking for feedback and validation—concepts that extend from the personal to the commercial, as women post not only photos and status updates about their kids, but also questions and suggestions about products and services.”
