4.67 Degrees of Separation

"According to a study of 5.2 billion such relationships by social media monitoring firm Sysomos, the average distance on Twitter is 4.67. On average, about 50% of people on Twitter are only four steps away from each other, while nearly everyone is five steps away."

     I'm fascinated with this idea that we are only a few degrees/people away from almost anyone on the planet. There are over 6 billion people on this planet and you are far more connected to them than you think.
     I think Facebook has truly brought this notion home, especially when you click on a random person's profile and you find out that you have 7 mutual friends. Um. What. Eye-opening.

     We're not just 6 Degrees from Kevin Bacon, but from almost everyone.

You're sphere of influence is far more reaching than you think.
