Social networking is the way the grey literature community remains connected in the 21st century. It encompasses a range of social media and communication tools that enable subject based communities to create, review, process, publish, and make grey literature openly accessible to public domain. Social networking is not new to grey literature, in fact it is inherent to this field of information. What’s new however are the technologies available to global grey literature communities in developing, monitoring, and sustaining valued information resources and services. In this context, social networking becomes a mechanism both used and applied by grey literature communities in the processes of knowledge generation and ensuing wealth creation. The Thirteenth International Conference on Grey Literature is beholden to its title: The Grey Circuit, from Social Networking to Wealth Creation. The imagery in the conference logo rekindles the spirit of Franklin in which the uncontrolled discharge of lightening transfers power to controlled networked circuits. Today, in the spirit of science, grey literature communities are called to demonstrate their know-how and merit to wider audiences.
