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.

We are proud that Avalara’s Accounting Top 100 social media leaderboard is made up of a diverse group of accounting industry professionals. Since the launch of this community in 2017, we have all benefited from group members bringing their communication styles, personalities, experiences, and visions to the table via our bi-weekly leaderboard releases.

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.
