Facebook Claims 4.74 Degrees of Kevin Bacon
Forget "six degrees of separation": The real number is 4.74.

Facebook's data analysis team has released the results of what it calls the largest social-networking study ever and discovered that only 4.74 people separate strangers from each other. That's largely thanks to Facebook itself, of course, as well as other modern social networks.

that is pretty interesting - the number is growing smaller, but yet our population grows larger. Wish there was a way to scientifically measure this for a true number.

OP actually had to say yeah - read this yesterday morning, and last night it made it to CNN news. Though - it was some "new girl", who has this segment called "Seriously?!" - which took away from the credibility of it - because it was coming from some newsreader valley girl :D

I still think its cool, and cooler it made its way to MSM.

I know many of us can count 4 degrees of separation between us and people in DC and some in hollywood.... not too sure about everyone on the planet though....still seems a bit far fetched to imagine.....which is what gives it the cool factor.
