Six degrees of separation (also referred to as the "Human Web") refers to the idea that everyone is on average approximately six steps away from any other person on Earth, so that a chain of, "a friend of a friend" statements can be made, on average, to connect any two people in six steps or fewer.

All it does it just link you to people on friend lists of your friends. It isn't some grand conspiracy, it is just bringing it out into the open. How many times have you met someone and realized they are connected to someone else you know? Happened to me. And with FB it is a great way to see if a new girl you are dating knows anyone related to the last one.

There are plenty of people without a facebook page, but I agree with you to an extent. There is a vast amount of people on facebook, and I could see where it would seem like "everyone" will eventually be connected.
There are, however, too many variables for that to actually occur.
Personally, Im tired of ex's being able to track me down...its a little creepy.
