to connect people together and etc. This research is object to find out
about the significant level of the social media as a distribution
channel to the agriculture product of Thailand. In this research, the
agriculture product is the Rice Berry which is the cross-bred unmilled
rice producing dark violet grain, is a combination of Hom Nin Rice
and Thai Jasmine/ Fragrant Rice 105. Rice Berry has a very high
nutrition and nice aroma so the product is in the growth stage of the
product cycle. The problem for the Rice Berry product in Thailand is
the production and the distribution channel. This study is to confirm

the product which is not a mass production product. This will be the
role model for the other niche market product to select the
distribution channel.
