Influence project

Need to know more....the information below is directly from the site:


We started with a simple question: Who are the most influential people online right now?

That's what The Influence Project is designed to answer. By participating, you will have your picture appear in the November issue of Fast Company magazine as part of an amazing photo spread. The more influence you demonstrate, the bigger your picture will be.

You may discover that you're more influential than you think.

Influence is not only about having the most friends or followers. Real influence is about being able to affect the behavior of those you interact with, to get others in your social network to act on a suggestion or recommendation. When you post a link or recommend a site, how many people actually bother to check it out? And what's the likelihood of those people then forwarding it on? How far does your influence spread?

This is the type of influence we're looking for. We want to find the most influential person online.
Who knows? It might even be you.

See it is not hard and you can start to track how your online presence is influencing other.

I didn't really understand why I should do this and my friend and long time activerain blogger Joeann Fossland said "Carra you should do this!" so there you go.  I did it.

You can take this idea.. do your own post and spread the word and get people to start clicking for you too!

This is the perfect way for all the social media skeptics to see their social influence.  The information actually will connect you with all the people you get to connect and show you the numbers. 

Let's get started and see how we fit together!

I hope you can have fun with this and see how all the connections work together!

I got an email earlier today from someone about this and went and registered. It looks really cool, and spreading some influence can't hurt, right! I might take your suggestion and do my own post about this, too! Just so everyone knows, the sign-up period for this ends on Sunday, so if you're gonna take part, make haste!

3rd time that I have come across this contest being mentioned today, so it must be making the rounds.  It sure sounds like a neat prize.  I am afraid my influence is pretty local so I will opt out of participating, but it does look like fun.

We live in a very fast life style...

With all the commercials and advertising...

How influential can we be...?

It is no longer taking aps. Maybe they have enough or too many already. Interesting!

Posted by Marilyn Harrell, Wixom Lake - Beaverton MI (ReMax Riverhaven) about 10 years ago

I'm not out to be the most influential. I just want to make a decent living. Ashton Kutcher or Lady Gaga I'm not.

Posted by Jim Frimmer, Realtor & CDPE, Mission Valley specialist (HomeSmart Realty West) about 10 years ago

I'm laughing at Jim's comment. We're both always making fun of Ashton and Lady. Just not the type of lives that either of us want to have.
