June 2016 Klout Social Media Rankings

June 22, 2016

[Written by Don Burgess]

There was a noticeable rise in Bermudians use of social media this month.

The vote on same sex marriages and the “How much would you pay” Big Brothers Big Sisters fundraiser has helped spark a bump in people’s Klout scores.

The heated “discussions” over the upcoming vote on same sex marriage saw much back-and-forth on Facebook while the Big Brothers Big Sisters dare on Front Street helped several people’s scores as they raised money for this worthy cause.

As a consequence, for the first time ever, there are seven scores at 75 or above and 15 scores at 70 or higher.

There were no changes in the top four as WWE and Fox News commentator John Layfield, the Bermuda Tourism Authority and musicians Collie Buddz and Heather Nova remain entrenched in the top four spot.

Big Brothers Big Sisters evangelist PowerGirl Trina saw her score hit 76 as she hit social media hard with the fundraising efforts.

Klout June 2016

Premier Michael Dunkley and LBGT advocate Shari-Lynn Pringle were tied for sixth at 75.

Victoria Isley, the BTA’s chief sales and marketing officer, joined the list for the first time with a score at 66. She joins three colleagues from the BTA, Glenn Jones, Jamel Hardtman and Alastair Jack, on the list.

Grotto Bay Resort became the leading hotel on the list for the first time after the Fairmont Southampton had a drop in its score.

The list actually has 58 names this month as there was a nine-way tie for the 50th spot.

All scores were recorded from June 17, 2016.

Klout attempts to quantify a person or business social media influence through a variety of platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, among others. The scores run from one to 100 with 40 being average.

  1. Shari-Lynn Pringle says:

    But aren’t these May scores Don, reported in June?

  2. Don Burgess says:

    Hi Shari,

    All the scores were recorded on June 17 so it was what people’s scores were on that day, but Klout uses the previous 90-day period for the score on any given day. So in effect it reflects half of June, all of April and May and half of March.

    Hope that helps,

    Don
