Those crazy French peeps have come up with a study that claims, thanks to technology, the six degrees of separation is now just three.
TechCrunch brings us the story about O2′s study.
Is it time to revise the old saw that everyone in the world is connected by just six degrees of separation? A study from French mobile carrier O2 has found that strangers are more connected to each other than they ever have been.
According to the study, the average person is now connected by just three degrees within a shared “interest” or social group instead of six. In fact, it found that people are usually a part of three main networks: family, friendship, and work.
