Top Influencers on Summify by Klout Score

We hope you’ve all had some fantastic holidays and found your summaries helpful in allowing you to enjoy your time offline. I certainly did!

Summify helps all sorts of people discover the top news flowing through their social networks. With all this summarizing going on, it’s easy to forget about the hard-working people behind the summaries who bring us all those great stories. Some of them are entrepreneurs, bloggers, editors, creatives, and even lawyers turned world travelers. No matter who they are, they all have one thing in common – producing, sharing, or curating high quality content. As we round-out 2011, we wanted to take a second to shout-out some of the top online influencers in the Summify community for their hard work in spreading read-worthy content.

With a little help from Sunnytrail, we’ve rounded-up the the top online influencers in the Summify community, based on Klout score. Regardless of if you’re a fan of the controversial score or not, it’s hard to argue anyone below is undeserving. Here they are:

The Dynamic of Influence: Social Analytics Arrive at #Summify

As your summary begins to make it into your daily reading routine, you’ve probably noticed that certain people in your network tend to contribute more to your summaries than others. Maybe it’s just a feeling, but it stirs up some interesting questions.

Who contributes to my summary the most? Who contributes to my contributors’ summaries the most? Wait a second, who do I influence? Slow down tiger. We’ve added in a dash of analytics to help you scratch that itch of curiosity. The beginning of social analytics is here and on your profile page you will now see an area we are calling “Influencers.”

The Influencers area is made up of two rows of images and some small numbers.

Influenced by, the top row, highlights the connections in your network which appear in your summary the most, and how many times each of them as appeared in your summary in the last 30 days.

Influencing, the second row, highlights the summaries which you’ve appeared in the most, and how many times you’ve appeared in them in the last 30 days.

Hover your mouse on a profile picture for an explanation of influence or click on any profile picture to view that user’s summary. If you’re browsing from within your own profile and click the picture of a user who is not yet on Summify, a “thanks” message will appear.

That’s not all. The Influencers section isn’t only found on your profile, it’s viewable on any public Summify profile, allowing you to explore and quantify the dynamic of influence between other users.

Explore

Influence is here to be explored. From the Explore area of your web summary you can now browse two new categories: users you are “Influenced by,” and users you are “Influencing.” Keep in mind that only those who are using Summify will be visible in the Explore area.

It’s a whole new world of social influence now and everyone is finding their own way to navigate it. Whether you’re a master of content sharing who holds great influence or a newbie wondering what you can do to increase your influence, we want to hear from you! Leave your ideas, tips and questions as a comment or email them to team@summify.com and we’ll be sure to share them with the Summify community.
