Social capital is anything that enhances your social standing. If you were with a group of professional musicians, a deep knowledge of Mozart would be an example of social capital, because that knowledge would be valued by that particular group. If you were with a group of people who had no jobs and were homeless and desperate, your father the janitor would be pretty impressive. Social capital is a relative term, depending on what group you're in at the time. You can choose to spend your social capital when you choose to reveal your special knowledge, talent or status.

An example of social capital would be 4.) Your uncle, the powerful Senator; this is because the uncle would have social connections that will encourage people to get favors.
