to inhabit and interact, and the term today has become largely synonymous with interactive 3D virtual environments, where the users take the form of avatars visible to others graphically. These avatars are usually depicted as textual, two-dimensional, or three-dimensional graphical representations, although other forms are possible (auditory and touch sensations for example).

Egypt: Overview of e-commerce
Internet penetration has grown rapidly since 2000, mainly because of a number of government and private-sector incentives. Nevertheless, electronic commerce is in its infancy in Egypt. Consumer mistrust of online transactions and a lack of legal clarity have been blamed for the stunted development of e-commerce, but low overall rates of computer and Internet use also are a major barrier.

6 questions to ask when choosing CMS for your e-commerce platform
A CMS is just about content so it doesn’t need much attention, right? Wrong. In an e-commerce environment CMS means so much more than being able to edit and publish content.

As the sophistication of consumers and online technology has risen, so have the demands on e-commerce managers to understand which tools are the best-fit for the business.
