THE MATH BEHIND PEOPLEMAPS
Dave Troy. "The conventional wisdom is that we can maintain roughly 150 real-world relationships....In an online setting, people may have many more relationships — perhaps a few thousand that they interact with in some meaningful way....The ability to infer things about both offline and online interactions is derived from the principle of homophily, which sociologists identified as the powerful tendency for people to cluster into groups of people who are similar to themselves. Colloquially we know this through the saying, “birds of a feather flock together,” and it is powerfully demonstrated in network data."

Maryland physician and author Charles L. Whitfield describes types of boundaries in his book, Boundaries in Relationships, and offers a check list for exploring personal boundaries and limits.
