Hungarian author Frigyes Karinthy first coined the idea of six degrees of separation, or that everyone can be connected through five acquaintances, in an 1929 essay entitled "Chains." Karinthy couldn't have possibly comprehended then just how quickly his theories would be proven with the usage of social networking sites like Facebook. Using Facebook, you can link friends together so that your circle of acquaintances grows larger while the world becomes smaller.
Click on a friend's profile. Scroll down to the bottom of the profile and choose "Suggest Friends," found on the left-hand side of the page. A pop up window will appear.
Select the pictures of people that you'd like your friend to link with via Facebook. A check mark will appear on properly selected friends. You may also type a friend's name in the search box at the top of the window to find a certain person. Profiles that you already have in common with your friend will be faded so you cannot click on them. You can select as many friends as you like.
Click "Send Suggestions." Your chosen friend will now receive the profiles pictures and links for people he may know who you'd like him to friend on Facebook so you can all interact together.
