I’m apparently way under-using social media.
A study by Columbia and Princeton professors says the average person has 610 people in their “acquaintance network.” Also, apparently 90 percent of the population have networks between 250 and 1,700 individuals.
Why does this matter? Because your network is critical to your life because the map “tells what your life has been like up to this point and where you’re going,” writes Marissa King, a professor at the Yale School of Management, in her book “Social Chemistry: Decoding the Elements of Human Connection.”
King believes having a strong, quality network is worth it because it can “profoundly affect your experience of the world, your emotions, and your personal and professional success.”
