How fast Flicker photos propagate in the social network?

The paper "A Measurement-driven Analysis of Information Propagation in the Flickr Social Network" provides an answer: the propagation is quite slow, and each published photo "jumps" no more than 1-2 hops in Flicker social network.

I wonder how what would be the result for a similar study applied to social network more newsworthy such as Facebook or Twitter.
