Social network study: Facebook is number 1, we don’t know our “friends”

A “friend” is no longer necessarily someone we know. According to a just-released Pew study on social networking, Facebook is the top social networking site, and the average Facebook user has never met 7% of their “Friends” in real life. There are some other interesting stats presented in the study, called: “Social networking sites and our lives: How people’s trust, personal relationships, and civic and political involvement are connected to their use of social networking sites and other technologies.” The full report is available here.
