The 75+ most influential wine peeps on social media

There are all sorts of ways to get ranked on some sort of top whatever lists, but we were quite surprised that after reading an article by the our social media mates the Wine Wankers we were actually on a couple of those lists of 'influencers in wine' using social media. We are in amongst some pretty good company and are are little humbled to be there. The Wine Wankers spent a fair amount of effort researching this and as far as we can tell they got it right (our numbers were correct). So congrats to them for their amazing success and we are raising a glass of something nice to celebrate our small success. Cheers to everyone on the list!
Here is an excerpt from their research.

So, here are the 75+ most influential wine entities on the net as at July 14th 2014.
Author: Conrad (of the Wine Wankers)

Over the last couple of months there have been a few “most influencial wine people on the Internet” type lists circulated.  They've all been quite good indicators of wine related influence on the net, within the scope of what qualifies to make each list of course.  I’ll briefly go over two of these…
About Klout -Klout uses various networks to measure influence including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Wikipedia, Instagram, Bing, Google+, Tumblr, Foursquare, YouTube, Blogger, WordPress, Last.fm, Yammer and Flickr to derive a score out of 100.  Apparently a score of 63 puts you in the top 1-5% of all entities rated.  Read more about Klout here.
About Kred -Kred only measures social media influence derived from Twitter and Facebook.  It has 2 scores, one out of 1000 measuring social media influence and one out of 12 measuring outreach, ie how “social” an entity really is.  Apparently a score over 750 puts you in the top 1% and a score over 800 puts you in the top 0.1% of all entities on social media.  Read more about Kred here.

So, here are the 75+ most influential wine entities on the net as at mid July 20 (and also a link to the Wine Wankers).

We are a little surprised and excited at the same time to be on this list. We are in some pretty cool company. So congrats to those on the list and thanks to the guys at Wine Wankers for putting it together.
