Love it when HBR makes key points driving CrowdFunde (our startup) including:

* Social media is changing everything.
* One way social media marketing changes stuff is we want to collaborate more.

* Less buying more sharing.

* Less consuming more producing.
* Less working, more freelance.

* Less KNOWN more UNKNOWN (more risks).
