Paulos <[log in to unmask]> To: [log in to unmask], Anna Kuchment <[log in to unmask]> Cc: [log in to unmask] 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.
