Cyber Monday Grows But Its Days Might Be Numbered as Black Friday Becomes the "Go To" Online Shopping Day Though online retail shopping increased by 17% on Cyber Monday from Black Friday, Mondays outperformed Fridays in November 2011 by 14%, according to data from eXelate
NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cyber Monday, the term coined in 2005 when shoppers opted to take advantage of faster broadband Internet in the workplace to do their online shopping, might be coming to an end.
Based on data eXelate compiled from measuring billions of real-time, online consumer interactions, online retail shopping was 14% stronger on Mondays than on Fridays in November 2011, and therefore the actual gain from Black Friday to Cyber Monday was far less significant.
In addition, Retail Shoes and Toys were the two new categories to make the top-10 categories with the greatest gains in shopping yesterday – Cyber Monday – when compared with Black Friday 2011.
