How the FANG Playbook, Facebook-Amazon-Netflix-Google Playbook works:
None of the FANG companies created what most considered the most valuable pieces of their respective ecosystems; they simply made those pieces easier for consumers to access, so consumers increasingly discovered said pieces via the FANG home pages.
