LinkedIn Top Voices

LinkedIn editors partnered with the LinkedIn Data Science team to measure the actions a LinkedIn member is able to generate when they engage on the platform – specifically 1) the volume of responses a person’s contributions sparked and the secondary spread of those responses, 2) the member’s body of work: are the contributions insightful, conversational and timely; do they seek to give and get help versus being self-promotional; and 3) does the body of work reflect the world we work in today.
All sharing activity measured took place over a 12-month period, from September 2018 to September 2019. As with all LinkedIn Lists, employees of LinkedIn and Microsoft were excluded from consideration.
