    den Freund eines Freundes eines Freundes ... kennen

    jmdn. weitläufig, nur vordergründig, nicht wirklich kennen.

    Dachte ich auch.


    Vielleicht ginge auch "an aquaintance once removed"?

    Üblicher sind drei Ecken. Vermutlich weil, wie dein Link ja auch sagt, jeder jeden über 6 Ecken kennt, angeblich.

    Bei "know someone remotely" denke ich an Teams :-)


    Für das Gebräuchlichste halte ich schlicht "a friend of a friend".

    Agree with #4. That's very common. Or you might say, "through mutual aquaintance(s)".

    re #3, im Deutschen kenne ich auch die Variante "um ein paar Ecken" ... allerdings in erster Linie zur Beschreibung von Verwandtschaftsverhältnissen ...

    Wenn man jemanden über eine gewisse Anzahl von Ecken kennt, dann offenbar entweder über 3, 5 oder 6.

    a friend of a friend


    Right. And then occasionally there's "a friend of a friend of a friend."


    "... once removed"?


    And combining it with that idea, e.g., "a friend of a friend once removed," "a friend of a friend of a friend twice removed."

    I'd say "a friend of a friend of a friend". (BE)
