Social Networks Affecting Your Health
My friend, Mark Hawker, hipped me to this amazing Nicholas Christakis TED talk called: The hidden influence of social networks that will be 18 minutes of your life well spent. I get that anybody who looks at Facebook’s latest valuation knows that social networks are “powerful.” But Nicholas Christakis dives into the individual’s network architecture and its very real effects on health based on third and even fourth level connections. Where you are in the overall network has a lot to do with your physical and mental dispositions, and seeing is believing as Christakis goes through 30 years of relational network visualizations… a feat that took five years worth of effort to put together.
Would love to hear what you think:
