As the 2017 Zukunft Personal has already been covered in great breadth and depth through various summaries, articles or LinkedIn posts, we decided to bring you a new perspective and highlight those social media influencers who have profoundly shaped and determined the online conversation during the conference and exhibition.
Among the many available social media platforms we opted for Twitter, as the main footing for our article, as it proved to be the most interactive online space overtaking other platforms. At the WorkLife HUB we tend to tweet a lot, and so does the Twitter account of the Zukunft Personal itself, therefore we decided not to include these two profiles in the listing.Who are the Top 10 Twitter influencers taking part in the online conversation during the #ZP17? Click To Tweet
For this particular event, the score of the Twitter influencers was allocated on how frequently they engaged about the topic by using the official hashtag of the event (#ZP17), how many times their tweets were retweeted, and how many Twitter followers they have.
Based on the number of tweets, interactions, the following participants were the top 10 Twitter influencers taking part in the online conversation during the Zukunft Personal in 2017:
With more than 40 individual tweets and 60 retweets the Twitter profile of the New Quality of Work program, an initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, without doubt, was the most active and influential account throughout the 3 day long event. We would like to thank the team of INQAde for being the most engaged social media account, and congratulate the colleagues on their hard effort in making the goals of this very important initiative a reality.
