Prompt: Using a rather loose definition of “friend” to show a weak link (i.e., meeting or seeing the person face to face, not simply as someone in a crowd), try to figure out whether you are separated from President Obama by six degrees or fewer. (Hint: Including your professors as part of your social network might help.) Share your story on how you arrived at your number. Also, create a mini node chart on a quarter on the social network. Create a strong ties, weak ties, isolates, and hubs. If you choose to draw the node chart out by hand, it is due at the start of class. The rest of the essay is due as stated in the syllabus.
Thus, this means you will have a page analyzing if you are seperated by six degrees to the president (this concept appears in your reading). The second part is creating a mini node chart (this concept also appears in the readings). Make sure to make a key or legend explaing the symbols for weak ties, strong ties, hubs, and isolates. This can be drawn by hand or done on the computer. Whatever is easiest for you.
two pages in total.
