Many people say that listening to music while they work improves their mood and can even make them more productive. Why is that? How can music both inspire creativity and boost productivity at work?
If you were to go back in time 15 years and tell yourself that Facebook – excuse me, Meta – would be as big as it is, you wouldn’t believe it. You would say: “you’re insane,” and return to tweaking your MySpace Top Eight. Think Facebook in 2007 or Instagram in 2011. That’s Web3 right now.

Rather, they can use content created by their customers to promote their products or services. This is called user-generated content, UGC for short.
Have you ever looked at a photo that was taken when you were a child? You, or anyone you know in it, might not even be the focus, but knowing the photo was taken at a point when you were younger can evoke this rush of contextual memories – leaving you in a state of bliss for that moment in time.
