I think there is wide-range in the quality of relationships with regards to the social connector-type.
I know a lot of connectors who are bridge-builders between people, but they themselves do not have any great interest in building deeper relationships with others.
Example: A few years ago, I met a hyper-connector on LinkedIN who had thousands of people on his 1st line on LinkedIN. He said did not really KNOW these people, LIKE or even TRUST. So why would he connect or refer someone? He was trying to get them to his business website for commerce and connecting was his sales channel.
But it is a dangerous path you take if you connect this way, because there is no guarantee of reciprocity if that is even your goal in the previous social example.
As a connector-type What are your values and principles you believe in? In the Standard of Trust tribal language, a connector is an individual, product, or organizational entity that consistently earns Relationship Capital (RC) by committing to connect one relationship entity to another relationship entity.
This has been a valuable service indeed, but the in this hyper-connected & hyper-transparent world, the question for the future is:
Will we need the online social-connector type or will technology replace this social bridge-builder?
