Aug. 23: Facebook friendship stats

The latest thing going around Facebook:

According to I have 201 friends, 81 more than average. 38% are male, 62% are female. 23 are single, 140 are dating or married. If I contracted a deadly variant of flu, I would likely infect 10 people, 1 of whom would die. When I share something on Facebook, it is typically viewed by 18 people. If I died today, an estimated 400 people would try to attend my funeral. Based on my Facebook profile, I have a 90% probability of getting married. I am likely to earn US$2.7 million and have 2.2 children over my lifetime.  Calculate your own stats at

I know these stats belong on Facebook and not my blog, but my stats aren’t that different from everyone else’s so I’m not even gonna bother publishing them there. What I find amusing is the 90 percent probability that I’ll get married. I also like how they use a flu statistic rather than a sexually transmitted disease statistic—they go with the more acceptable rather than the most likely. smiley  Not in my case, of course. No matter what Sheila R says about the herpes I gave her at breakfast a couple weeks ago.
