How Influential Are You?
Have you jumped on the bandwagon for one of the latest in social media experiments? Fast Company recently announced their 2010's Most Influential Person Online Project and dare you to give it a try by saying that "you're more influential than you think". By clicking the link in the previous sentence you'll add to my influence. While you're there go ahead and register for your own personal URL to spread and measure your influence. You submit a picture, name, and email address and you're off.
Apparently, the more "influence" you have means that your picture will grow larger on the virtual wall and your rank will reach closer to the top. Fast Company plans on having a complete spread with everyone's picture that participated in the campaign for their magazine's November issue.
I'm interested to see the result. Since they'll undoubtedly not get every single person that should participate to do so it won't necessarily be a measure of THE most influential person online. Rather, the most influential person online that chose to participate and post their link everywhere. Still, we can always learn something from these social experiments.
