Network effects almost always lead to or create a Flywheel Effect, but the Flywheel Effect can occur where network effects do not, as we’ve seen in the previous examples. Network Effects are the most powerful source of the Flywheel Effect. This is because Network Effects (past a certain tipping point, especially when combined with virality), can be auto-catalytic.
