The Circle of Exposure

Basically the idea here is, the more socially connected you are, the faster news will reveal itself to you. Although Twitter and robust RSS feeds are not mass-adopted technologies, they offer a faster stream of news and access to more headlines, thus are larger circles. Facebook can obviously replicate this, but that depends widely on how a person uses Facebook. My assumption is that most Facebook users do not fill their stream with news content, although memes most likely do appear commonly.

Just some random thinking inspired by a question from Patrick Chaupham
