Hey guys,I found this article really interesting because we had talked about 6 degrees of separation last class. Basically, this article talks about changing 6 degrees of separation between people to even a smaller number now with social media. In just the US, Facebook’s average connection between two random people was 4.37. Twitter and linked in’s connections are 5 or less. It’s crazy that this number decreased by so much with social media

  1. This is consistent with what we talked about in class. Social media is really good at fostering the weak ties that bring the network closer together, and reduce the degree separating people.
