Note: You should make sure that you are carrying a matching persona whilst working on your social links, as this will provide an approximated 1.5x multiplier to all social points you earn during any of the above interactions. Generally speaking this will be unnecessary after reaching rank 2 with any of the Social Links, but it will help to get into this habit early on.
