The Influence Landscape: The Evolving Power of Shapers & Influencers

The Influence Landscape: The Evolving Power of Shapers & Influencers | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | 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.

Anyone can be an influencer. People no longer need to own a TV station to make their voice heard, and neither do they need to be particularly conscious about their social magnetism. Influencers simply have ‘it’, a social currency that makes them look good to others. People trust influencers to show the way.
