Personal Influence Growth Analysis

Between Aug. 28 and Nov. 29 this year, my Twitter follower grew by 63 (12.3 percent) from 513 to 576. My Klout score slightly went up from 44.72 to 46.99. During that period, I’ve gained numerous followers who are reporters and designers at The Daily Orange where I work as a copy chief. Several Daily Orange alumni — Kathleen Ronayne at The Associated Press, Marwa Eltagouri of The Washington Post and Dave Levinthal with The Center for Public Integrity — and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications also began following me on Twitter. I got followed by Ronayne, whom I had been following before she started to follow me, after I liked one of tweets and by Eltagouri after I tweeted out an article written by her. I had talked to them prior to start following on Twitter. Levinthal began following me after I published a feature story for Remembrance Week this October.

This tweet performed the best among all tweets with the class hashtag. I think many people engaged with it because the picture was 360 degrees and it was “different” from what people had seen.

I received more than 100 likes on this Instagram post for Remembrance Week. I think it did well because of the photo: a woman looking over empty chairs on the Quad where 35 SU were sitting on Pan Am Flight 103.
This pot got 107 likes. The photo was in decent quality.
This post earned 76 likes. This was my first time using Swipeable, and I got a like from a graphic design intern at the Tampa Bay Times who seldom clinks a like button on my Instagram pictures.
