(Disclaimer: No one on this list willingly grows social media facial hair.)
It’s January and I despise the “2010 lists” as they all end up being popularity lists with no value. This list crosses many verticals but all use online technologies to benefit their particular brand.
This list is unique as it is a collection of women who are in technology or are using an array of tech tools online including social media. They are implementing their ideas and strategies across other verticals. They understand the value that they offer, they have a passion for their ideals and finally they implement these concepts daily. These are the women who will push past the pack in 2010. You should pay attention. They are making their own rules and boundaries. Most will also present at your event or conference.
They are “Game Changers“. (Upcoming interview series)
It is up to you to find valuable content online and to be objective when you consume such content. This list consists of many women you may never have heard of. They are not focused on gaining popularity they are focused on their vertical and content. Some are entrepreneurial and some are corporate based, but all are implementing their concepts daily. It is up to you to recognize their talents.
You can also find more influential women at the Women Of Web 3.0 Group.
