Generosity is key to successful networking. Yes, it is is old networking wisdom AND it still holds true today; we simply have many more ways to express generosity. IMHO tweets, pins, and likes are acts of generosity in the new networking era. Helping someone else’s blog post reach a wider audience by sharing it with your network — how generous is that?
