6 or 7 Degrees of Separation

Okay I know about the 7 Degrees of Separation thing. Some of you may know it as the Kevin Bacon theory regardless the idea is that each of us is only 6 or maybe 7 people away from any other person in the world. Pretty amazing. I had not really thought about this theory for sometime until tonight when I was trying to find one of my students on Facebook, typed in Taylor and ended up with over 500 people. I never found the Taylor I was looking for but it took 22 pages with 10 profiles per page before I ran out of Taylor's whom I share a friend or more with. That is 220 or so Taylor's whom I am connected to. Pretty amazing. Not that I know all of them, or would even really think to add them as my friend, but that they share friends with me. Such a small world. And they were from all over it, as were my friends that we have in common. It got me thinking about how easy it would be in today's world to really change the world, just because of the connections that we have at our fingertips.

So if you could spread a message or change the world with your connections what would you say or do? I want to know...maybe I can help spread your message!
