Social Capital!!!!!!! What’s your investment?

Laura Solomon (Solomon, 2011 ) defines social capital as “Becomming a strong, consistent member of the online community”  How invested are you? I have been “banking” since the late 90’s. I have been more a watcher that a player. I’m wondering why it interests me? Is it because it is new and may offer fresh possibilities? Or is it because the only way to control the massive amounts of information is to be selective and have the freedom to pick and choose what you view/subscribe to?  I think the older generations are still caught up in the read the whole thing scenario – eat it all on your plate. My plate is too full!
