The Drum Social Buzz Top 50 countdown continues: numbers 20-11 revealed
This week The Drum has started to reveal its Social Buzz Top 50 – a list of the most influential people in the UK social media marketing world.
Earlier this year, we asked readers to nominate those who they thought excelled in the sector. The longlist of nominations was then judged by the jury of this year's Social Buzz Awards, who ranked individuals based on leadership and innovation in the sector, as well as the overall contribution made to the industry.
The individual to rank in first place will be revealed at tonight’s Social Buzz Awards (27 November) and will be named Social Media Individual of the Year at the Awards.
Each day this week, we are publishing teasers with a countdown of who made the list, with the full list, including profiles on each of the 50, to be unveiled tomorrow (Friday 28 November).
Here, we reveal numbers 20 to 11.
