Today's generation is full of surprising success stories nobody could have imagined. Nobody has expected that the era of information would sprout into chunks of business ideas with Unique selling propositions, like any other industries that are categorized as human necessities. Apparently, applications such as Facebook, Instagram, Netflix and the likes are just examples of these inspiring stories that made people--now public figures more important in this planet, and made the world crazier than before.
These businesses really connected people and made distances closer. More so, these so-called apps addressed the needs of the people, no matter how impossible it was before.
Moving on, it is obvious that these multi-million entities have their mechanisms that maintain their operations. But it is ironic to realize that the service they provide required them only the people's machinery, without expecting too much from them.

It has surpassed Ebay and Amazon when it comes to selling stuff, but believe it or not, they need no single form of inventory. Alibaba is just an online platform for stuff for sale. The site does not directly intend to sell their own produce. If some item is lost, it's the retailer-user's fault.
But it doesn't bother to sell cameras. What's the importance of this when Instagram's users already own their smartphones or Digital cameras for their sustenance?
Although sometimes it's CEO and creator Mark Zuckerberg posts media materials, he's still a separate entity from the app. More importantly, Facebook only provides the mechanism for us people to share our different media: may it be some images, videos, graphics, writing, podcast, links, and the likes.
Uber taxis are just normal private vehicles owned by individuals. The company doesn't intend to buy millions of units from countries where they are operating, but rather, they open the who-wants-to-operate-an-uber-taxi field for those interested parties to offer their service and make use of their private vehicles under Uber's facilitation.
Airbnb establishes this opportunity for these local residential sites to feature themselves and to market them at a more convenient means.
Netflix provides various watching where people can choose from. Apparently, they are not a cable provider. If you need movie, documentaries, series and other motion clips, you could get it from them. But you don't need to subscribe to a cable program
