Talk:Microsoft study proves six degrees of separation

Active discussions

Microsoft didn't prove anything, it just showed the theory to be fairly accurate in some samples. Sorry, can't think what to rename the article, but I think it should be renamed. Wikidsoup (talk) 16:23, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

  • "Reinforces" or "Supports" instead of "Proves" would probably do fine. Though considering the failings of the other studies in this, it's certainly closer to proof than we've ever gotten before. 11:21, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Can someone please rewrite this article, it is very hard to understand IRCarlos (talk) 22:19, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Two points; what exactly constitutes a "degree"? If a "degree" is a person, then the article and title should be rewritten as "Six People by Seperation", no? 2008-11-10 T22:12 Z-8 06:13, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

The concept comes from Stanley Milgram's research. The use of "degree" has remained the preferred term ever since, including in popular culture. No, the article should not be retitled. Even if you were right, it shouldn't this long after publication. --SVTCobra 06:19, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
