We believe that communities and relationships make people happy, and that happiness is just about the most important mission there is. Further, where there are densities of people – online or offline – there is the opportunity for commerce. This is good.
THESE ARE THE VALUES THAT GUIDE OUR BUSINESS AND WORK:
