Always give credit. Laura Solomon: This applies to all content, not just retweets. Do you want to promote a new program that was a patron’s idea? Name the patron and link directly to that person if you can. People want to be involved when they know their name is going to be promoted. This is another reason why photos of patrons at programs are a popular way to get people to visit a website. The library is an organization that cannot exist without its community, so be sure to acknowledge that community whenever and as often as possible.

About social capital?
Social capital is what allows any organization or
individual to make requests of its followers
successfully. Think of social capital as funds in a
sort of intangible bank account that you add to by
listening to, engaging with, and doing favors for
others. Each time you make a request, you are
drawing on that account. If no social capital has
been established from which to draw, actions
requested of others are likely to be ignored.
Having social capital is, in many ways,
equivalent to having credibility in a selected
online community. Social capital can be earned
only over time, by participating appropriately in
