The beast of them all

With Threads’ unheard-of success these past few days, here are two quick reminders – 

1. This is what Facebook (the company) knows how to do. When I talk about Facebook, people are very skeptical because they think: “Facebook is dying”, “it’s for old people”, “other platforms are more trendy”. But not only do they have a huge ecosystem with Facebook (the social media) being by far the largest social media platform in the world, they also fundamentally understand product design. 

2. Google+ had hundreds of millions of users, and after years of trying, Google ended up burying it. So let’s give it a minute.


Facebook Inc., now Meta, is by far the largest social media and instant messaging ecosystem in the world. Here’s how it became that. #facebookacquisitions #instagram #whatsapp #messenger #instantmessaging #wechat @Facebook

I don’t say it as a cliche -
I genuinely enjoy sharing knowledge.

I’ve built a business from the ground up, managed dozens of employees over the years, worked with hundreds of brands and trained people from 500+ companies. As a result, I have gained valuable insights that I’m happy to pass on to others - twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday.
