Minneapolis, Minnesota (October 20, 2010) – Who are the most influential people on-line in 2010? Hint: you may never have heard of many of them.
Months ago, Fast Company magazine created its Influence Project in an effort to find out who was the most influential. Would it be media darlings like Oprah and Shaq? Or would it be more ordinary people whose influence may not be as great with more traditional media outlets but who exert significant influence over their Twitter followers, Facebook friends, and LinkedIn connections. More than 32,000 people registered with Fast Company to find out where they stood along with a chance to get their photo in the magazine this November.
The top 10 on-line influencers according to Fast Company’s The Influence Project were:
1. Jeremy Schoemaker
2. Shefqet Avdullau
3. Tod Sacerdoti
4. Cory Boatright
5. Greg Clement
6. Frank Kovacs
7. Sebastian Saldarriaga
8. James Dunn
9. Richard Lee
10. Pace Lattin
“I was surprised and pleased to see that I was ranked as the 43rd most influential person on-line in The Influence Project,” said Steven Rothberg, founder of CollegeRecruiter.com job board. “I’ve been an avid user of social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn almost since they came out and they’re integral to our efforts to market our college job board to students searching for internships, recent graduates hunting or entry-level jobs, and employers looking for top talent. In fact, between just those three sites, we’re able to reach about 170,000 friends, followers, and connections within seconds. As the person at CollegeRecruiter.com who manages our social media efforts, I get my photo in Fast Company but my efforts would be futile if it weren’t for the stellar work put in by our writers, developers, and other employees.”
