20 more (whom you may not know) to learn how to do Social Media from
Posted on May 10, 2012 by @mqtodd
Last week I posted about 20 up and coming forces to be reckoned with on Social Media. I kept it to people who have not necessarily been added to these kinds of lists before. As is my way I did it very quickly and randomly so course I missed some out that you need to know about as well. Here are another 20. All equally cool and worth connecting with and also from all around the world.
I looked closely at the 20 from last week and attempted to define what distinguished them from “the pack”. As with the 20 listed below a lot of it is to do with belief. Belief that social media is here to stay and worth investing time and energy in on a daily basis. Another factor is a love of people. Toss in the discipline to have a daily or at least highly regular presence and great personal branding skills and you have some great people to model yourself on.
As with the 20 last week these guys are easy to find. After giving this post a share somewhere so that all your friends get the chance to learn about these guys too just go to Empire Avenue and put their names in the search area and max out on their shares. As quickly as possible because all of their prices are only heading one way.

Social Media is booming in Holland and these 2 guys are among the leaders of that.
Steven was such a no brainer for my list last week but I thought he was already an established star. It turns out that that that is only in my eyes and a few select others and it has been suggested that I promote him here. Steven is a keen runner, big family man and a sok of knowledge about social media. Tells me he needs to blog more and I agree.
