A new report is out ranking the "50 Most Social Cities." In this case, it's "which cities have the most social businesspeople."
Milwaukee comes in at 29, not too far from our population-based media market rank of 34. San Francisco, San Jose, New York, Ventura and Austin make up the top five. We're tied with a number of cities including Charlotte, Cincinnati and Nashville.
What's your definition of "social?" Chances are it's changed through the years and probably will continue to.
NetProspex, the sales and marketing database company that did this ranking, has something it calls its "social index." It measures "the number of employees with social media profiles across Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook using a corporate email address," and "social connectedness," according to "the number of connections across social networks, including Twitter followers, Facebook friends, and LinkedIn connections."
For its size, I think Milwaukee's a rather connected city. It's also very easy off and online to build relationships. We don't, though, crack the top 50 for "most businesspeople on Twitter" but we're far from Anchorage, AK, the least social city in the survey.
