Time Magazine's Social Influence Index Led By Obama, Gaga, Kutcher

Time Magazine yesterday published their list of the most influential people in the world, and along with it published their new “Social Influence Index,” which measures appeal by analyzing Facebook and Twitter. The algorithm adds up followers on both Facebook Fan Pages and Twitter accounts and applies a basic formula to even the influence of each network. Leading the pack was President Barack Obama, followed by Lady Gaga, followed by Ashton Kutcher. Ashton Kutcher? This can’t be right.
