Social media and the internet tap into the deeply social nature of human beings, connecting people and enabling the sharing of content. Jonah Peretti, founder and CEO of BuzzFeed, explains how the media industry is responding to the demands of an increasingly online-first audience in his keynote address at Goldman Sachs’ sixth annual Private Internet Company Conference held in Las Vegas.

If you stay true to the internet, if you embrace the internet, if you embrace the consumer advantages it provides, and if you make things that lean into these kinds of advantages, in the long run, you're going to win; in the long run the internet always wins.
