The Most Important Factor For All Tech Startups


Facebook, Instagram, Uber, Google, Airbnb, Paypal are all successful platform rights?

There is a fundamental thing that makes them all hugely successful, powerful, lucrative. It is the network effect, which makes them to scale up exponentially.

Never think about compete with them! It is even very difficult to try to get rid of them. Why?

For example:

In Facebook, I still have around 1500 online friends, around one tenth of them are acquaintances, 50 of them are my true friends and convincing all of them to move with me to anotherplatform is an impossible mission. The rest, the same.

Do you know Peter Thiel?

The co-founder of Paypal, the investor of Facebook and probably the mentor of Mr.Zuckerberg, once said:

“Paradoxically, then, network effects businesses must start with especially smallmarkets. Facebook started with just Harvard students—Mark Zuckerberg’s first product was designed to get all his classmates signed up, not to attract all people of Earth.”

So, Mark Zuckerberg built the network effect.

Perter Thiel did it.

Larry Page and Sergey Brin did it.
