The use of these platforms is constantly evolving; they are now used for advertising, group chatting, the sharing of information, and e-commerce communication. This paper provides a review of the currently available Mobile Messenger Applications, comparing their abilities, function and features. In particular the paper focuses on the engaging of these Apps in Global Social Commerce. In addition, the engagement of users towards sharing, commenting and rating the products and services were also discussed.
