Your Friends Have More Friends Than You

Math warning. Researchers analyzed Facebook and friend counts.

They found that a user’s friend count was less than the average friend count of his or her friends, 93 percent of the time.

That seems totally counter-intuitive. If it’s an average shouldn’t you have more friends than your friends about half the time?

No, and this article explains (rather well) why.
