I recently compiled a list of Facebook pages for aspiring content marketers.
That article was such a hit that I decided to drill down and create another list amazing Facebook pages & profiles to follow.
This time the list is geared more toward social media.
The occasional musician, journalist & motivational speaker found a place among these 99 influencers -- but most of these people & brands made their names on social media.
The list includes heavyweights like:
- Chalene Johnson
- Sue B. Zimmerman
- Jessica Northey
- Ann Handley
Please enjoy the article & get ready to Like & follow a few new pages & profiles.
Note: the people on this list were selected in no particular order. It's impossible to rank a dynamic group like this!
