Bacon Number Google Feature Gets Response From Kevin BaconBy: Chris Crum - September 14, 2012
As previously reported, Google has a search feature, as part of its Knowledge Graph, that lets you search for anybody’s “Bacon number,” in order to find out how close they are to actor Kevin Bacon in the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game.
Kevin Bacon’s bacon number has been deemed a zero. When Bacon caught wind of this, he tweeted:
What am I…zero! http://t.co/tUTGvFop
I guess in my heart of hearts I kinda knew I was a ZERO http://t.co/JseQpns8
Kevin Bacon does not appear to have a Google Plus account (despite his love of Google TV).
According to Google’s recently launched “Knowledge Graph carousel,” people who search for Kevin Bacon also search for Kyra Sedgwick, Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling, James McAvoy, Tom Hanks, Sean Penn, Julianne Hough and Steve Carell. Each of them, besides Julianne Hough (a 2) has a Bacon number of 1.
