What is PeekScore?: 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. For first time visitors a more in-depth explanation of what the PeekScore is, and how to increase your own, can be found by clicking through here.
Mike Bloomberg still has another year and a half remaining on his third term as New York City’s mayor, but already attentions are beginning to turn to whom his successor might be come the start of 2014. This entry here is the first of what may be quite a few such entries, where we will assess and compare the digital footprints of those hoping to run PeekYou‘s hometown.
This entry’s title is slightly misleading, as only some of the individuals below have officially announced their candidacies (Tom Allon, Scott Stringer, and Mayor Bloomberg’s chief opponent in the last election, Bill Thompson), but these are ten of the most prominent names finding their way into the general scuttlebutt, or – as is the case with this list’s first place finisher – being mentioned frequently in the press as possible candidates.
This is not a commentary on the likelihood, or lack thereof, of any of these folks becoming mayor. This is simply a look at their relative impacts and presences here in cyberspace (their digital footprints, as we call them, a concept you can see explained in brief above, or more in depth by clicking through here).
Any potential and/or announced candidate whom we’ve left off? Let us know in the comments.
