Study: Finding a spouse through social networking

There is hope for all nerds out there spending time on Facebook and Twitter.

According to researchers, "68 percent of married people in the survey reported meeting their spouse through a friend, family member or other mutual acquaintance.

“If you are single and you know 20 people reasonably well, and if each of them knows 20 other people, and each of them knows 20 other people,” Dr. Christakis and Dr. Fowler write, “then you are connected to 8,000 people who are three degrees away. And one of them is likely to be your future spouse.”
