Kuue eraldava sammu[edit]

Sotsiaalvõrgustike toimemehhanismide vaatlemist võib alustada "Kuue eraldava sammu" (six degrees of separation; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_degrees_of_separation) ideest - kui paigutaksime kõik maakera elanikud laiali nii, et iga inimese ja tema tuttavate vahel oleks vaid üks samm (tuttava tuttav oleks nõnda kahe sammu kaugusel jne), siis oleks keskmine kaugus mistahes inimeste vahel üksnes kuus sammu. Seega on mistahes kaks inimest maakeral ühendatavad läbi keskmiselt viie inimese.

In Wikipedia:

Facebook[edit]

A Facebook platform application named “Six Degrees” has been developed by Karl Bunyan (London network), which calculates the degrees of separation between different people. It has about 5.2 million users (as of July 31, 2009), as seen from the group's page. The average separation for all users of the application is 5.73 degrees, whereas the maximum degree of separation is 12. The application has a "Search for Connections" window to input any name of a Facebook user, to which it then shows the chain of connections. As of July 26, 2009, the application was no longer available,but was made reavailable just recently.

So if in facebook (people who have internet and computer) maximum step count is 12. Then in real life this number will be much higher then 12.

So it would not be very correct to refer that "the maximum step count between anyone on the planet Earth is 6 steps".
