Airbnb's approach to growth is to delight our users and make it easy for them to share theAirbnb story with friends. We want to grow Airbnb by delivering on our brand promise to "belong anywhere," by connecting users with each other, and by giving every person more reasons to talk about Airbnb.
We believe in the following principles:
Our users tell the story better than we do.

Authenticity always - no tricks.
