    Absolutely, it's been proven in experiments where they took a group of people and told them that they had to figure out some way to get to some celebrity contacting only people who were known to them or their friends. Every single person accomplished their goal in six degrees or less. Maybe it's not a total global link but I think that it may be. No one's tried that to the best of my knowlege.
