Forget that puny friends list on Myspace and Facebook. If you want to really test your popularity and social standing, you need to get a bunch of people hooked up to Social Bomb. The current version of this is set to accommodate 30 players, you get more points for being around people with higher reputations, and those with low reputations drag you down. The point is simple; to make sure you don't have the lowest score or "social bomb" because that person will drag everyone else down. What I find really interesting about this is how it will effect the esteem of the players, we've already reported studies on how Myspace and Facebook aide in self esteem, so who knows what a real world esteem game would do, but I bet it would help you “get by”, as long as your not the one who’s going to socially explode.
