The Power of Social Media
#SMCHAT for Wednesday, September 22nd, will take a look at the trend of "Who to Follow" recommendations. Bing just also added their own recommendations for "Who to Follow" via Bing Social. But, influence and popularity are different measures. Are those more popular being made more influential by the "Who to Follow" features? Are these features influencing you?
Twitter recently gave more weight to their “Who to Follow” feature in their new interface. Now, Bing Social is also recommending “influencers” to follow on Twitter as it relates to your search query. Suzanne Vara provides a nice overview of the implications in this post for Social Media Today.
