Super Influencers are changing the world through social media Politics Corporate Transparency Bloggers credited with getting obama the nomination. Obama embraced them by being massively involved in social media , from twitter to blogger to slide share Super influencers have targeted some big corporations giving them a dose of ultra transparency. Wal-Mart is one of the main targets; there is Wal-Mart watch website, Wal-Mart groups on Flickr , hundreds of local blogs fighting the development of Wal-Marts in their back yard and social networks aimed at organising boycotts . Issue Campaigning Reviews Impact: Super Influencers You would be hard pushed to find a category where consumer reviews have had more of an impact than restaurant reviews. Blogs from food lovers or even waiters now compete with the professionals with making or breaking restaurants. In tandem review services such as London Eating or Yelp are now essential when choosing where to go. Wael Abbas used Youtube and blogs to hi-light human rights issues to the world.
