  1. Hmmm – No Jay Baer, Brian Solis, or Clay Shirky? They’d make my list…in fact, you may have just inspired me to make one!

  2. I was hoping for some fresh faces with a bit of thought leadership.

  3. This list of influencers is very solid, however their influence stands alone, and was solid before Klout came along.

    Klout is not a game changer.

    This is my first blog post I am reading of yours… and certainly will not be my last. :)

    Great information!


    By the Way.. Does Makeuseof come even somewhat close to reaching the top 10? Everything they write is top notch

  5. I recognize 2 of the names and I need about 48,500 more followers to make the list. I guess my heart just isn’t in it.

  6. I think what distinguishes this list is that their followers probably actually do hang on their every word. It is the smaller accounts with 10,000-20,000 followers who probably have a lot of people who are not actually engaged.

  7. The top 10 seems to be an interesting group.

  8. Followers are one thing. I would love to see an in-depth study on how many people actually read, share and/or re-tweet the content from a particular social media blogger on a daily or weekly basis. In the end, content is king and good content will determine how much real time people spend on a site.
