The US General Social Survey claims the average American has slightly more
than 2 people they discuss important matters with.
Our Connected Lives and Pew Strength of Ties studies show somewhat higher
numbers (see Hogan, Carrasco & Wellman on our website). But still reckoned
by the dozen (or two).
When the inevitable reporter calls, how do I reconcile these numbers with
the 100-200 or so that folks on this list are saying are Facebook
Does anyone have a distribution of the # of friends per Facebook account:
mean, median, mode, quartiles, ranges would be nice too.
