The social graph continues to reorient how people interact. We have long believed in the Facebook-led narrative that change and opportunity come from expansive social networks. We see this through companies like GoFundMe, which in 2016 reached a $2 billion milestone of crowdfunded donations, or in Spotify and its use of the social graph to power a global music community.
People have more opportunity to capitalise on their talents, wherever they are in the world. Cloud services, internet commerce and viral marketing offer entrepreneurs the means to build disruptive companies from just about anywhere , from New York City to Bangalore and London to Helsinki.
