Window shopping is an activity that many engage in by looking at displays of stores through windows. With the internet available to most people, this has become a virtual reality as well. Being able to do on the internet what a person would in front of a regular store is how online shopping has become the new window shopping.|
When you are looking at a window display, you have an idea of what the store has to offer. Every season the displays are changed so suit whatever is the trend at the time and also the time of year. This helps to create ideas if there are gifts to buy for friends and family.
When you are taking part in this experience, you must have time to do it. Too many people are in a rush all the time to truly engage in it. That's why many would participate in this activity when they are waiting for someone. They many also have some time from work during their break or lunch hour to shop. In this case they have lots of time on their hands. It does not involve any money, but it is an effective way to know what your personality. This means knowing what you like and do not like and what immediately grabs your attention.
The internet provides one with the opportunity to shop online without being in a regular store. There are displays presented online that you can view and there is no need to spend money. You are able to view everything for free. This includes transportation cost. You do not have to go to the store to shop. You can stay where you are as long as you have a computer or laptop nearby.
This is the new window shopping because people are literally on the internet all the time. Shopping is mainly done in this manner and it replaces regular shopping for many people. For them this is the reality and the way to live. The same way you generate ideas by looking at a display in a store window, the same can be done online.
Everything is virtual these days. Virtual simply means the same in practice but not in name. So online shopping is the same what you would do at a store window in practice, but not in name. You are not in front of a window but in front of a computer screen. There are different items and displays to see, but you are not actually seeing them as you would in real life.
But it is real in a sense. There are opportunities to see an item in a three dimensional format, but it is still on a computer. It may be the same as seeing the item in a regular store. In a regular store, however, you have the option of actually going inside.
Online shopping has become the new window shopping, and it seems to be here to stay. More people are comfortable and familiar with computers and technology on a whole. There are those who would never shop for anything unless they are doing it online.
