Alchemy of Change

The “third-order&# engagement that makes this possible is what defines the underlying value of the Facebook business model. Third-order engagement flips traditional business models on their head, by blurring the role of employees, partners and customers. Tweet. Democracy Engagement Innovation Mission Network
