Visualization of Social Currency and Capital

Brian Solis, one of the leading thinkers on digital media, just posted this visualization to his flickr account. I gives a visual overview of what he recognizes as "new forms of money," being "trust, relationships, reciprocity, authority, popularity, and recognition."

If there are new forms of "success" and if there are legitimately different and enhanced ways to function in a democratic society, what does this mean for schools? We recognize and teach Robert's Rules of Order to help kids have the skills to function in a democratic society, but should we also be teaching kids how to responsibly use twitter?
