And everybody is trying to live either, A, a perfect life on the Internet and posting like "My Perfect Life" on Instagram or it's Twitter and things like that, or if I don't have a perfect life, uh, if I can't get approval, I will get attention," Warren tells Piers Morgan.

"If we start following these retail brands on Facebook, Twitter – I think the one place to start really paying attention to is Pinterest, and Instagram are emerging, as well – but across these platforms, these are becoming the new e-mail services, e-mail open rates are declining, these social networks are growing, and so I would focus on following the retailers of choice across these platforms," he told Piers Morgan.
