Social Connections: Six Degrees of Separation
We’ve all heard the term, “Six degrees of separation”. This is part of the universal principle heralding that everyone is- on average- six steps away from any other person on Earth. Here in the South (United States), we sometimes say there are only two degrees of separation! This connection process is also known as the “Human Web.”
Our world does seem to be shrinking at a faster speed than ever before. As social media sites grow even more popular- and who knows what will become popular next?? – our world is likely to shrink even further. Social networks and human interconnectedness go hand-in-hand and are part of our ever-growing pop culture.
Do you know who you five connectors are? Can you reach out and “touch” them? Can you make “the” difference for them?
