Appinions defines an influencer as a person, brand or company that expresses a contextually relevant opinion that is meaningful enough to elicit action from others. How is Influence calculated? Appinions calculates individual influence scores based on an influencer’s opinions for a given topic. Scores are determined by the following criteria: •  Frequency of actions the opinions generate; •  Credibility of the publications in which the opinions appear; and •  Diversity of publications carrying the opinions. Appinions calculates influence at the topic level to understand the relative influence of different topics. What is the Net Influence Score (NIS)? Appinions calculates topic influence scores, or the Net Influence Scores, based on the following criteria: •  Influence scores of each individual within the topic; and •  Number of trust impressions created by each influencer on that topic. Trust impressions are driven and derived by what influencers are saying and the subsequent actions taken by the audience. What is the most “Actioned” opinion? The most “actioned” opinions are the influential opinions that resonate the most and thus travel the furthest. Influence scores in this report were obtained on August 2, 2013 and are based on data 60 days prior to that date. How Appinions Analyzes Influence
