Google Adds ‘Six Degrees Of Kevin Bacon’ Into Its Search System

Google has automated the popular game ‘Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon’ and built it into its search system.

The search operator requires users to type in “Bacon number + the name of any celebrity” to see how closely they are related to the actor.

The game is based on the idea that its possible to connect every film actor back to Kevin Bacon.

It was borne out of a statement made by the actor when he said he has worked with everyone in Hollywood.

Bacon is known for roles in A Few Good Men, Hollow Man and Wild Things.
