CAMPAIGN: 2012 Social Innovation Summit

CONTENT: Blog

The Social Innovation Summit (SIS) kicks off tomorrow afternoon, May 30th, and the hashtag #SIS12 will host the top conversation on Twitter around the intersection of business innovation and social transformation.  With over 60 speakers and 500 attendees - ranging from Fortune 500 corporate executives and government leaders to foundation heads and social entrepreneurs – you can be assured that the Twitter feed will be full of actionable insights and powerful quotes.

To help you churn through the active Twitter list, at Waggener Edstrom Worldwide (WE is a thrilled sponsor of this great event) we have taken a deep dive into the speakers and event hashtag using our Influence Ranking tool. Influence Ranking is built on a methodology that focuses not only on the typical attributes of reach, amplification and engagement, like many of the products on the market possess, but also adds significant weight to audience and content relevance. For example, an outlet or influencer can have enormous reach, but if their content is not relevant to a company’s target audience, their rank goes down significantly or they are not included.  Our results – a recommendation of some of the top tweeps to follow:

  1. @AliciaKeys (7,682,991) – Alicia Keys, Artist and Co-Founder of Keep a Child Alive
  2. @Team_Gleason (13,485 followers) – Steve Gleason, former NFL player and founder of Team Gleason Foundation
  3. @JohnWoodRTR  (357,358 followers) – John Wood, founder of Room to Read
  4. @HunterWalk (21,304 followers) – Hunter Walk of YouTube
  5. @J0NATHAN_G (3,239 followers) – Jonathan Greenblatt, director of White House Office of Social Innovation
  6. @HBuffett  (2,107 followers) – Howard W. Buffet, Director of Howard G. Buffett Foundation
  7. @JeffHollender  (6,666 followers) – Jeffrey Hollender, co-founder of Seventh Generation
  8. @PaullYoung (7,634 followers) – Paul Young, Digital Director of Charity Water
  9. @AkhtarBad (1,376 followers) – Akhtar Badshah, Senior Director of Microsoft Community Affairs
  10. @JuneCohen (12,302 followers) – June Cohen, Executive Producer of TED Media.

Alicia Keys tops the list with her robust following, greatest reach and likelihood of amplification. Jonathan Greenblatt and Akhtar Badshah have high clout given their consistent output of social innovation related content. All of the Summit speakers have fascinating backgrounds and are influencers in their own right, and we are so excited for what is in store.
