Facebook. LinkedIn. Twitter. They’re household social channels we’ve experimented with and grown accustomed to over the years.

More than $1 billion has been invested in the networks that are defining and capturing millions of professionals in entire industries – education, healthcare, technology, architecture/design, and many others. They’re connecting buyers and sellers in more direct ways, fostering direct conversations between users, and reshaping how brands think about reaching and engaging with their users. It’s the great unbundling of social and it's happening now.
