Submission + - Yahoo, Facebook Test "Six Degrees Of Separation" (zdnet.com)

The goal of the Small World Experiment is to determine the social path length between two strangers by tapping into the world’s largest social network and its 750 million users, each of whom have an average of 130 friends.
