What is Klout? Who are the top influencers in the wine industry? (part 7)


What is Klout?
Who are the top influencers in the wine industry?


1) What is Klout?
The Klout Score measures influence based on your ability to drive action. Every time you create content or engage you influence others. The Klout Score uses data from social networks in order to measure:
  • True Reach: How many people you influence
  • Amplification: How much you influence them
  • Network Impact: The influence of your network

2) Who are the top influencers in the wine industry?
I'm compiling a list of the people with the highest scores in the wine industry. This first article includes only influencers whose name starts with letters S and T. You will find their names, scores, links to their pages (twitter, facebook, google+, klout, etc), as well as their top influences on Klout (besides wine).

Here they are... Wait a second! Please note that only scores over 40 were included. If you are my friend on Facebook and were not included... work harder! :)

Top scores (60+ / letters N, O, P,  Q, and R):


 Very interesting fact (6): Our top score here - Rick Bakas - is one of the most respected names when "wine and social media" are in the same phrase. The same applies to most of the other names with the top scores... Is it just me, or it's becoming a little harder to prove that Klout scores are meaningless?
____________________________________________________________________________________ 

Top scores (60+ / letters K, L, and M):


 Very interesting fact (5): Again, 8 of the people above have #winelover in their profiles. Are we going to be able to break this record? (#Olympicspirit) :)
 _____________________________________________________________________________________ 

Top scores (60+ / letters G, H, I, and J):

Jamie Goode 69

Ilkka Sirén 67

Grace Hoffman 64

Juan Manuel Gonzalvo Mancilla 64

Jasmine Hirsch 62

James Marshall Berry 61

Galina Todorova Niforou 60

Joe Roberts 60

 

 Very interesting fact (4): Jamie Goode has the highest score I've found so far... Is there a chance that fame and a high klout score have some sort of connection?
_____________________________________________________________________________________

Top scores (60+ / letters E and F):
  1. François Desperriers 69 
  2. Emmanuel Delmas 68 

Very interesting fact (3): 8 of the people above have #winelover in their profiles
_____________________________________________________________________________________
                

Very interesting fact (3): 
Have you noticed that both top scores so far (Andre and Dusan) have #winelover in their profiles?
_____________________________________________________________________________________
 Top scores (60+ / letters A and B)
  1. Andre Ribeirinho 68
  2. Arto Koskelo 67 
  3. Alexandra Corvo  63
  4. Anne-Victoire Jocteur Monrozier 61


Very interesting fact:
The 4 top scores for letters A and B are EWBC alumni... let's see if this "coincidence" occurs with the other letters of the alphabet... The other common factor is that they are all my friends in real life... :)

Please let us know if your Klout score has changed since this article was published and we will gladly get it fixed for you.
Cheers,
