Top 10 Social Media Week Influencers (INFOGRAPHIC)

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.

  2. This is my first visit to your AWESOME blog, Sean. It truly earns its name with the amazing content you've posted here. Social Media Week sounds like it's the place to be for anyone who's serious about connecting over the various platforms available.

    Even though it's not perfect (What is in this world anyway?), social media provides a wonderful word-of-mouth platform for many social good projects and charitable campaigns as well as a great way to help others in our various industries with their business endeavors.

    Thanks for publishing this super-fly infographic. I love it! ;-)
