Giving to get

The problem with 'social media' is that it largely isn't.

'I do this for you in order for you to do that for me' describes a relationship that has mutual utility; it's a pale imitation of a caring relationship, and may describe the subtext of traditional business relationship.

We get surplus vitality from giving. Is giving to get social? What does this attitude do to social capital?
