Subject: friendship paradox
In light of Barry Wellman's email, I think that my piece on
popularity in the online February issue of Scientific American should be
amended, if at all possible. The first line of the second paragraph should
read (addition in bold font):
This simple realization, *first noted by sociologist Scott Feld in 1991, *is
relevant not only to real-life friends but also to social media.
As I wrote earlier, I wasn't aware that the idea was linked to
anyone. It occurred to me because of my interest in social media.
