Most of us in the online space have known for a while that consumers like to shop while at work. We’ve also known that Black Friday was not as big online as it is offline. Now, the mainstream press have got a hold of the data and coined a new term, Cyber Monday. Here are a few articles mentioning it.

MSN Shopping shared the same success yesterday. Our traffic on Cyber Monday was our highest of the year (so far) and up 52% year over year. In the graph below, you can see how Monday’s traffic stands out in November.
