Social networking and happiness

From the BMJ a study on happiness within social networks:

Happy people tend to be located in the centre of their local social networks and in large clusters of happy people.  

Happiness... is also a property of groups of people.

...people are embedded in social networks and the health and wellbeing of one person affects the health and wellbeing of others.

Social networking as a public health focus area?
