The comprehensive Onalytics report leverages a PageRank based methodology to extract influencers on a particular topic and takes into account the number and quality of contextual references that a user receives. The research looked at social topical inﬂuence as well as topical authority by analyzing both social engagement on Twitter and how much inﬂuencers were referenced in association with digital transformation on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Forums, Blogs, News and Tumblr content. These calculations also take into account a user's resonance (engagement), relevance (number of tweets on topic), and reach (number of followers).
