Accounting Top 100 Social Media Leaderboard – Nov. 9, 2022

The Accounting Top 100 social media leaderboard scores and ranks users based on five separate metrics, each of which is weighted according to its perceived value.

“If you could not work in this industry, what profession would you pursue?,” was the question we posed to our network of accounting professionals. We found the answers to be both entertaining and enlightening, giving us the opportunity to learn more about this dynamic cohort. Be sure to check out some of the reactions below.

Here are some highlights from the latest Top 100…

Social Reactions

How the leaderboard works: The Accounting Top 100 social media leaderboard uses an algorithm that scores and ranks users based on five separate metrics, each of which is weighted according to its perceived value. These five metrics are calculated every two weeks and combined to form a Power Score: a 1-100 value based on Rise.Global’s Relative Scoring Method. This Power Score determines a user’s rank on each new leaderboard release.
