Social Media Week is one of the most highly anticipated events in the social space. Every February and September, authors, strategists, journalists and enthusiasts gather for five days of lectures, panel discussions, and huge networking events in six continents.
OmLondon and AdobeUK formed a partnership to closely examine the tweets and online chatter for the week. They sifted through the data of more than tens of millions of people using Social Media Week hashtags, and created an infographic (pictured below) of the top influencers during that period. I was both honored and humbled upon the news that I made the top ten along with some great tweeters, including Ann Tran, one of my Huffington Post writing partners.
Social Media is an ongoing global conversation, a universal language that knows no boundaries. The numbers from OmLondon and Adobe affirm the power of the medium, and its ability to connect people in extraordinary ways.
