If you’ve ever played Six Degrees Of Kevin Bacon know the game just got easier.

Tracing an actor’s movie roles attempting to connect them to Kevin Bacon is a fun pastime.  It’s made its way into national ad campaigns and the subconscious as a whole.

But thanks to Facebook the game may need a facelift.

The game is based on the belief that any two individuals can be linked by no more than six degrees or relationships.

Now a new study shows that of Facebook’s 721 million active users they are all linked on average by four degrees of separation.

Have fun with the easier play rules!
