For decades, sociologists have tried to prove whether or not everyone in the world is connected by six degrees of separation. Now Facebook has the technology to put the hypothesis to a proper scientific test. The Small World Experiment is a social project from Yahoo and Facebook designed to test whether anyone in the world can get a message to anyone else in just six degrees of separation by passing it from friend to friend.
Participate in this experiment and you’ll get to see how you’re connected to other people while helping to advance the science of social networks.
