Social capital consists of benefits arising from working together with other individuals or in groups. Means may be social gatherings or using Internet.
In academic pursuits such as preparing a research paper or achieving higher education, social capital comes very handy because you can ask for advise or suggestions from your peers and other academics. Another way, networking with other academics help you to find employment with universities or colleges where people who know you may recommend you. This is also a great tool to find out where to obtain specialized training for your profession.
In today's multicultural environment, social capital can be applied to understand other cultures. For example, you can find contacts using Facebook to discuss situations with people in other countries and get feedback to understand their point of view. Knowing people from various cultures and understanding them is conducive to develop the concept of global citizenship, an umbrella under which people can live in harmony and peacefully.
