Everyone who studies social media knows the importance of adding value. Social capital is earned by adding value to conversations and communities, and the lives of the people involved. But what we don’t usually think about is what happens when we don’t add value.

Are you obeying the social media law of value? – Short thoughtful post that hits spot on where we need to see “value”. Like this tumblr blog: does an extra click here add value? Or can I do the same just directing folks to articles like this? My hope is the “value” comes in my spin, my take, my application wherever it comes around. Anyway, this one’s worth clicking through.
