Your line open. is now

Richard Davis

effective do care how you're affects about other I'm if more just trying I in more wonder or of think there a social same between on first the are countries? is words media the or question. In I'm are kind we'll a wondering about adoption this and France because things levers just levers, Maybe feature and raise impact they Stan's do to the it of other you methodology overseas. kind Thanks. uniform are

Justyn Howard

It's interesting. Yes.

our I maturity opportunities think the around it world. obviously of the has other with a do of and lot social some to

see are behaviors. also consumer different that there We

are of doing what some other cases consumers bit in the social is example, with each a channels. For terms over and in brands behind U.S.

region. a it's so nuanced going to And bit by be

used, think in et North America adoption lot rates I how cetera. it's For example, Europe tends of to like terms and a look

I on a at South becomes social a of some but adoption in as look interesting. maybe think the into channel primary rate communication when more America, reliance markets we lower

There and collective terms kind are output in to or obviously impacts of those might ability be operating local what regions in revenue businesses those of the their spend. of in brands

So, the great we'll that of currently is kind that all fill good but to of we're markets continue in with adoption unit in. seen we've news that economics fantastic out the

well we getting we even in the make some as those think we upside long-term. to or large refine mature just likely so, today more markets And continue that of that as more investments it's those and as relative playbook, think U.S., market with larger to as
