For this lab, we went to Target and asked people if we could use their cell phones. This lab tests people's trust of different stereotypes.

A quote by Jack Salmon:
"You got PONED baby!!!"
Social capital is largely represented in the social networking sites, like myspace and facebook. When you look at most people's facebooks, they have about 500 to 5,ooo friends. Who knows that many people and are actually friends with them!? The thing is that people constantly want to increase their socail capital, so they accept almost anyone to become a "friend" of theirs on facebook. Most people only have one or two GOOD friends, so it's a little interesting to have 80 people on your top friends list. Facebook is a good way to stay in touch with friends, especially ones that are a long distance away. But, facebook can also be a superficial way to make fast "friends" and enhance your social capital.
For our project, we had people on campus lay down in front of the Pickle and spell out the word love. This demonstrates social capital because it's people working together and demonstrating social capital in its simplest form: love.
