The Average Person Has Never Met 7% of Their Facebook Friends

Here’s more proof that Facebook has changed the definition of the word “friend.”  According to a new study, the average Facebook user has never even met 7% of their Facebook friends.  That works out to about one out of every 14 “friends.”

And there’s another 3% who you’ve only met ONCE.  That’s one out of 10 friends who you’ve met zero or once.

Here’s the full list of how the average Facebook numbers broke down:

–The average person has 229 Facebook friends.

-22% or about 50 of those friends are from high school.

–12%, or about 27, are extended family.

–10%, or about 23, are coworkers.

–9%, or about 21, are from college.

–8%, or about 18, are immediate family.

–7%, or about 16, are from extracurricular groups or clubs you belong to.

–2%, or about five, are neighbors.

–And of course, 7%, or about 16, are people you’ve never met.

–The rest come from miscellaneous other places.
