So who are the most influential people in social media today? Forbes Magazine took a crack at it by using the site PeekYou. One thing worth noting is that this list only analyzes Twitter and not the only social networks. Certainly the results might be different if other social media channels were included. That said, it’s a great list and worth checking out.
From the Forbes article:
PeekAnalytics measures not only the size of the consumer audience, but their quality in terms of their network size, social participation and their ability to spread a message further. In this table we’ve summarised pull, total audience, identified consumer count, and consumer ratio.
|Name||Pull (X)||Total Audience (Followers)||Identified Consumer Count||Consumer Ratio|
That list looks different if you include the wider social network of their followers. For example Ann Handley’s followers have a substantially larger average social network size than Chris Brogan’s followers.
