That’s making our world more transparent—as we see more and more info coming online…you can filter it to determine what is right (for you). The more information we have, the more equipped we are to make good decisions.

Everything we did on the (social) network was about getting people active, which means giving people a voice. We created a culture of creation on the campaign.
