From the description of the interview: 
"Jon Kleinberg studied Facebook network structures together with Head of Facebook Newsfeed Lars Backstrom ’04, MS’08, PhD’09, creating a paper called "Romantic Partnerships and the Dispersion of Social Ties: A Network Analysis of Relationship Status on Facebook.” The goal of this study was to find a metric that could help rank the strength of relationships on Facebook, and the results have implications for sociology as well as the way that we think about building social networks."
