Will Netflix CEO Hastings usher in a new era for online finance, investor relations & social media?

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings is a remarkable entrepreneur. He founded a DVD-by-mail business in the late ‘90s that now boasts 25+ million subs and is disrupting the media and entertainment industries.

But similarly impressive and yet possibly overlooked is how he’s provided a blueprint for the future of online finance, investor relations, and social media. It’s not farfetched to conclude that Hastings’ latest actions will be the catalyst for a new way in which public companies court investors online.
