Why Your Friends Have More Friends Than You Do

Why Your Friends Have More Friends Than You Do | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it

The title of Feld’s paper says it all, and here’s a little demonstration you can do to confirm his conclusion.  List all of your friends.  Then ask each of your friends how many friends they have.  No matter who you are, whether you are a man or a woman, where you live, how many (or few) friends you have, and who your friends are, you will very likely discover that your friends on average have more friends than you do.

Sharrock's insight:

We need to explore the social-emotional impacts of maintaining social networks (digital as well as face-to-face). This is topic relates well to math and science. The topic may interest secondary students and could be tied in to critical thinking skills, explorations of cognitive bias, fallacies, and other ways to be more rational. Kids in high school are familiar with social networds and recognize that some keep count of numbers of connections/friends/nodes in the network of a specific person. The article also introduces the social-emotional impact of becoming aware of those numbers, saying that this awareness "depresses" the person. School counselors might crosswalk a lesson that explores this impact: math, social studies, science, health.
