Research Small World Experiment. The Small World Experiment is designed to test the hypothesis that anyone in the world can get a message to anyone else in just "six degrees of separation" by passing it from friend to friend.
Sociologists have tried to prove (or disprove) this claim for decades, but it is still unresolved . Now, using Facebook we finally have the technology to put the hypothesis to a proper scientific test. By participating in this experiment, you'll not only get to see how you're connected to people you might never otherwise encounter, you will also be helping to advance the science of social networks. We have already recruited a number of Target Persons from around the world. HootSuite - Social Media Dashboard for Teams using Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin. Sociorama.
