Define Influence? Dictionary.com defines Influence as –”noun 1. the capacity or power of persons or things to be a compelling force on or produce effects on the actions, behavior, opinions, etc., of others: He used family influence to get the contract.”
That is all well and good, but there is one ingredient they forgot. It ‘s like the secret ingredient to a recipe. Once you add it to the mix…BOOM! Culinary mastery has been achieved. The secret ingredient is passion.
“We have searched the web to bring you the leading Influencers and Game Changers in Social Media and their field. “
They fit the Dictionary.com description, but also have a high level of passion for what they do. This cannot be bought or taught in class. You can’t order it online or win it at a weekend workshop. It is something that burns within you. It is a rush you experience that will not let you rest at night. A passion like this is an indicator that this is what you were meant to do in life.
I have had the pleasure of meeting and engaging everyone via Social Media . We are sure you will want to meet them as well. This list is in no ranking order. Everyone listed brings a special flavor to the dish.

YOU: You are a major component that pulls this all together. There are millions of people on the web communicating through social media right now. You are sharing thoughts, experiences and shaping how this wonderful medium grows. Without you this online ecosystem would fail. Or we would spend the majority of our time talking to the mirror or one another.
Through my encounters, I have worked with and come across many interesting people from around the world. If you are not following any of these fine people or you are not truly engaging your followers, do so. Getting to know them and building relationships is how we bring value to the social media landscape. This is a short yet powerful list and I am sure you can add many more to it.
