    I posted this on my facebook page and guess how many responses I got?  None.  This type of question really makes you think too hard.  How would you respond?

    If you were to add to your facebook page all the people who you know your life has impacted, how many friends would you have?

      A difficult question indeed. Impacted people in what way? It is possible to have impacted someone without them being, or becoming, a friend...

      Is this a trick question? Technically aren't we all connected, impacted by the Six Degrees of Separation concept? I mean, if I impact you, each person you know or are in contact with impacting passes that on and it keeps going and going so, I guess then your facebook friends would be everyone in the world which as of May 4, 2010 is 6,818,700,000 people. I think my profile would probably blow up and I would never get to read everyone's status updates!

        Intriquing response.  I have been amazingly surprised at how those six degrees become a small circle as we go through life.  I quess I was thinking more about what my life counted for in terms of the good I do for others on a daily basis.

        But you know it might just simply be a smile to uplift someone so that they could go home and not scream at their kids

      What impact has to do with friendship? You don't  impact your friends, you love them !

      Impact can be positive or negative. And everybody impact both ways.

      I hope to God that they wouldn't be included--too embrassing to think or want to remember those people or what I might have done to them
