The Forbes Top 50 Social Media Influencers for 2013 [infographic]
Anyone else who you think should be on the list? They are most American, but a few from this side of theAtlantic.
Forbes used Peek Analytics, which gives people a pull score, as the tool to measure influence and evaluated bloggers and social media users who create their own content. That is quite an important distinction from the aggregators.
One things that has changed since last year’s list is that it is more gender balanced with the Top 10 equally divided between men and women.
This year has list institutional/employer based players and more “self-starters” or to put it another way those “who have made social media their business, or who are advising on how to make social media your business”.
The Top Ten includes the likes of Sean Gardner, writes at Huffington Post. Forbes said he blended social media insight with inspirational messaging.
To show that gender balance, number two in the list is Ann Tran who writes primarily about social media in the travel and hospitality market.
