Shopping checklists, product recommendations, and illustrated buying guides help simplify the shopping process. Plus, from its 21st Century Mom® Insights Series BabyCenter knows that moms are using digital tools and services to shop. In fact, 86 percent of moms use social media regularly, which is why BabyCenter is proud to offer an innovative Product Picture Poll as part of the Products & Gear channel.

The Product Picture Poll is a visual tool that makes it easy for mom to poll her friends, family, and entire social network to help her decide which products to buy. Mom will be able to easily create picture polls and share via Email, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest as well as within her BabyCenter Community groups.
