I'll just add that, when it comes to peers and reciprocity, it's important, as an influencer, to have critical thinking & not share everything people ask you to share. Or share but point out possible flaws or ideas you think differently about. Even from close friends or more influential folks. That's what true friends do. They'll appreciate your point of view if they are true friends.
That is - stay away from "butt-kissing" and agreeing with everything from that person, especially when it comes to people you'd like to get connected with. And don't let your "influence" to be defined by a "reciprocity club/hub" - I share your content and, therefore, you must share mine. If that's what people expect from you & you always agree - you're not an influencer of any kind.
