A great opportunity that comes with a marketing blog that has over 50, 000 subscribers is to recognize people who are doing great and interesting things. We do that in several different ways and one of the most popular is the list of 25 Women Who Rock Social Media. Check out the 2010 list for the back-story on the origination and for the initial 25 honorees. Here’s the 2011 list who nominated the amazing women below.
There’s meaningful and impactful work being done for and using the social web by these women. It brings great satisfaction to draw attention to the people who are a part of advancing social technologies for business and those who use social media to make a difference.
The original list was from my own network, but now nearly all nominations come from past honorees. So this list is not my list as much as it is from a community of talented people recognizing their peers. We are only curators that hope to draw attention to women who are making a difference and impact on or through the world of social media.
