Three and a Half Degrees: The Power of Connection

Our ability to connect has never been stronger. In the past, the only way to connect with others was in person or through less immediate channels. Today, technology has created endless opportunities for people to connect. Instantaneous communication has enabled the world to become closer than we ever imagined and it’s sparked a fundamental change in culture. We’re no longer six degrees apart – technology has squeezed this distance from person to person. Today, we are separated by three and a half degrees.

This podcast explores the benefits, opportunities and challenges of this new proximity; bringing together unexpected pairings of business leaders, mavericks and entrepreneurs who share surprising parallels in values, visions, experiences and ideas.

Hosted by David Fischer, Facebook’s VP of business and marketing partnership, this journey of exploring connections aims to bring the world closer together through common lessons as we set out to build new businesses, paradigms, products and movements in today’s ever connected age.
