@namtari Is social capital something you can "hoard"? At least in a manner similar to how one can hoard real estate or a water source by damming a river?
Just because person A and person B are friends, doesn't mean that person B and person C can't be friends. Though it does take away some attention, but mere attention isn't usually counted as social capital (is it?). Although perhaps it should be (i.e. TV celebrities, YouTubers etc.)
@amici think more as in the scenario of the bully that somehow everyone still looked up to, or that band member that can do everything they want to their fans because of their social capital.
@namtari As a person who sort-of view myself as socially weak (a bit autistic), I can't say I care what one calls it. It sucks either way 😅 but I've been lucky to have some supportive ppl in my life, and was even the involuntary recipient of social privilege when I was young: my parents were foster parents to many children, and during some few weekends every year, they'd make the foster children sleep outside of the main house (in secondary building), for "core family time". It was very awkward
