This survey shows that people respond to the powerful combination of both of those by sharing. This has been the key driver for the tremendous organic growth and consumer-driven consumer adoption of our service. We thank our consumers for continuing to enjoy our service day in and day out and recommending our service to their friends and family, be it through social sharing or word of mouth.”
