One of the newest trends in social media is to measure a user’s “influence” within a social network based on the content they post and their interactions with other users. This measurement is typically summarized as a “score” that makes the logic easy to comprehend as one number. We thought to ourselves, "Why not do the same thing with salesforce.com Chatter"? So we did.
The results of our Chatter Social Influence challenge were posted yesterday. The challenge was to develop a native Force.com application to measure and display a Chatter user’s social influence in the org.
It took longer than expected as we were waiting for a Winter '12 org to do the testing. We had two really great submissions from hirday and kenji776 with kenji776 coming in first. Congrats to both contestants!
