New York, NY (PRWEB) July 27, 2011
PeekYou is pleased to share the third installment of our ongoing series, where we rank the possible, presumed, and official candidates for the 2012 Republican nomination for president, according to the size of their "digital footprint" as measured on PeekYou's PeekScore scale.
Observing how certain candidates’ online presences increase as their campaigns evolve and the field grows more competitive, and conversely how others may possibly decrease their digital footprints as their campaigns begin to wane, gives our readers a unique, online-centric perspective on the contemporary political landscape.
By far the big story of our most recent update is the quite noteworthy increase in PeekScore(and corresponding ascent up the rankings) of Minnesota’s Michele Bachmann. As has been observed by many of late, Bachmann’s public profile has been amplified dramatically – and her candidacy is being taken quite a bit more seriously – since a well-received showing at CNN’s June 12 debate in New Hampshire. This rise in PeekScore confirms that
Congressperson Bachmann's recent growth in being recognized out in the flesh and blood realm is corresponding with a noticeable increase in impact in cyberspace. Such a dramatic boost in PeekScore over a relatively short period of time is rare, so from PeekYou's perspective this is perhaps the most interesting development since we started measuring and ranking the candidates in this way.
PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news.
