ISSUE – Apr. 27 | How Sheryl Sandberg’s Sharing Manifesto Drives Facebook

On the last day in January, about two dozen prolific users of Facebook were invited to the social network’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif. There, they were arranged in a circle of brightly colored chairs to meet Sheryl Sandberg, the company’s second-highest-ranking executive and the Oprah of corporate America. The guests, who had made life-changing friendships using an organizational tool called Facebook Groups, were invited to ask Sandberg questions. She insisted that she had to hear their stories first.
