  30. 31. VALUE EXCHANGE Interaction that benefits the individual EXPERIENCES, NOT MESSAGES Engagement, not advertising. Co-creation, comment. DETACH & DISTRIBUTE Content that does not exist in one silo. Allow good content to spread & allow consumers to build on it. Infectious content will spread faster.
