The Influence Landscape: The Evolving Power of Shapers & Influencers

The Influence Landscape: The Evolving Power of Shapers & Influencers | Living & Learning | Scoop.it

Even as recently as twenty or thirty years ago, the people with influence were relatively easy to spot: the President or Prime Minister of a nation, religious leaders, CEOs, and probably your parents.

 

Their influence was based on a combination of position, experience, knowledge, wealth – and most importantly control of the channels of communication to the “people,” for to have power influence must be spread.

 

No longer – the influence landscape has already shifted dramatically and will continue to evolve.

Annemarijs's curator insight, October 18, 2013 11:06 AM

Wie heeft de macht in deze groeiende netwerksamenleving? Zij die de meeste invloed uitoefenen, maar zijn dat nog dezelfde die dat vanuit hun functie of geboorterecht altijd gehad hebben?

Tom Hood's curator insight, October 19, 2013 11:29 AM

Great visual of the modern leader and to quote Jim Collins,m"we are moving from organizations well managed to networks well led." Essentially, the leaders of today will be more like association executives than command and control CEOs of the past. What do you think about this?

As we transition from keyword placement to more advanced practices of topic targeting, it's actually easy to incorporate these concepts into our content. While most of us don't have the means available to calculate semantic relationships and entity occurrences, there are a number of simple steps we can take when crafting optimized content:

Bart van Maanen's curator insight, October 24, 2014 9:14 AM

Als je meer wilt weten over het optimaliseren van je online teksten, zonder ze vol te stoppen met je belangrijkste zoekwoord, is dit artikel waardevol. Zo waardeert Google bijvoorbeeld ook synoniemen, waardoor je ook meer variatie in je tekst kunt aanbrengen. Teveel woordherhaling is slecht voor de leesbaarheid en levendigheid van je berichten.
