transactional #trust  and  #reciprocity  ~ not just for G+ ~ imo also key to #organizing , community building and robust, inclusive social networks
 
Why I am on G+ so much

I had to explain to a corporate colleague, yesterday, why I spend so much time and energy on G+ engaging and interacting, putting up original content (when my website should be really benefiting from it) and sharing a lot of original information and insights (which should logically be kept for my books which bring me money.) 

It was a fair question which became the initiation point for a long discussion into which were also drawn his line manager and the company's Corporate Communications expert. 

I had to delve deep into my own motivations in order to actually make sense to people who don't use G+ and see social networks only as a marketing tool. As the discussion evolved I used their Whiteboard to sketch a few connections and relationships. I began to explain that there is a high level or reciprocity within G+ that is not evidenced in Twitter or even Facebook despite the fact that the latter is mostly close friends and family.

Once I started to look at it through the prism of Trust (which is the subject of an upcoming book which has me buried in research as well as writing) things began to fall into place.

What's more, the usual 'soft' platitudes of making friends with people you have never met and actually trusting them, suddenly began to make more sense.

Everything here is a contract of sorts, running on Transactional Trust and governed by the Reciprocity Response (https://goo.gl/mPAJWc). Transactional Trust, in turn, is made up of three other different types of trust, each of which has its own key points.

Not only does this help all of us interact in ways which provide mutual gains but it allows us to interact with different people, differently, calculate 'trust' differently for everyone and differently for each situation while still understanding that it is trust we use. 

Trust is the key ingredient in establishing and strengthening connections between individuals which then begin to figure into such other concepts as identity, self-worth and the establishment of one's presence. In semantic search trust is the key value ascribed in the interaction and engagement between Entities. 

When I got home my Whiteboard doodle became the diagram you see below. Have one awesome Saturday. :)

Is there a lesson here for advocacy organizers and activists? 
 
The Bad Behavior of Visionary Leaders - The New York Times - http://nyti.ms/1GCBSGs
Brilliant leaders like Jeff Bezos, Steve Jobs and Elon Musk often give little care and appreciation to their hard-working and loyal employees.

2015 #F5F  - 
 
I aired my minimalist #F5F  on Twitter. This is the only slightly longer post that goes with it. Blogging? Ever hear that expression, "I gave at the office"? Besides I want to cultivate +Laura Gibbs excellent practice of using G+ as a blog. I only just started getting the newsletter so did it without seeing the guidelines (until after). I was close though. Instead of the "first make" connection, all my finds (or re-finds) were mooc-met, listed in chronological order. 

Again but with the mooc, date if I remember: +Jaap Bosman (CCK11); +Laura Gibbs (Coursera Fantasy/SF, 2013); +Sheri Edwards ( #etmooc ); +Sarah Honeychurch ( #rhizo14 ) and #rhizo15 ).  

"Moving" is one of my #clmooc  themes because I am and another is "walking the road we make it" from Machado, "_se hace camino al andar_"

Not only do the two mesh -- making that road, you meet others making theirs -- and not just once. "Making the road" is a"make" on many levels, but a theme I am using in posts elsewhere about individual advocacy. More about that later -- with links.

One of #EndFamilyDetention's postings of Lilian Yamileth Olivia-Bardales' suicide letter has suddenly been stopped, but there are other places, & the government will NOT stop shame of what they are doing by hiding it from public!

THIS is another great site: take a look... 

https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/2094036-lilianyamilethsuicidenotespanish-2.html
Lilian Yamileth Olivia Bardales is a nineteen-year-old mother and left a suicide note at a family detention facility in Karnes City, Texas moments before attempting to kill herself to escape her reality of being denied parole and asylum. She has been detained with her 4-year-old son since last October after crossing the U.S. - Mexico border illegally.  #EndFamilyDetention #KarnesMoms  According to the statements she made to her asyl...

India has trained more than a dozen German Shepherds to protect its tigers

India now has a new class of soldiers to tackle animal poachers—wildlife sniffer dogs.

On June 20, these dogs were inducted into the forestry departments and police forces of various states after a “Passing Out Parade” held in Bhopal, in Madhya Pradesh.

Marching in front of a rapturous crowd was the batch of 14 sniffer dogs—all German Shepherds—along with their 28 handlers. Their induction marks a doubling of India’s strength of wildlife sniffer dogs.

It wasn’t easy though. These dogs had to undergo a number of gruelling sessions to be trained at detecting wildlife products such as tiger skins, ivory tusks and bones of endangered birds. They are also trained to locate animals that have sustained injuries, which helps authorities to get hold of poachers swiftly.

The dogs will now be deployed in seven states that are home to large tiger populations—Madhya Pradesh, Assam, Uttarakhand, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Jharkhand and Karnataka.
