Social Awards 2017: BEST detail

The nominees for the final category for my own appreciation awards to be announced March 5th, have been set.

Best in Social Media--award is appreciation for the person, group or organization which has pushed the envelope in advancing social media in a way of greatest benefit to the world. It is meant to be a measure of substantial esteem, and to set the bar for excellence, to those who have shown the best that is possible, so far.

Nominees are to be listed person or people first, followed by groups, followed by companies, in alphabetical order, which is by last name for people but first significant name for companies.

Nominees for 2017 BMSA's BEST are: Diane von Furstenberg, Elon Musk, Donatella Versace, Condé Nast, Facebook, Innocence Project

This category tries for the widest functional range.

Social is increasingly speaking the language of our world, in all its many diverse languages and ways to communicate, while for practical reasons, as live here, am focused narrowly primarily here in the US. From my perspective as one person, and in a pivotal year as 2016 was, will note as usual are some arbitrary areas of exclusion, like for political or religious figures.

Consistent for this category, each of these nominees was a pathfinder showing the best of what is possible with social media last year.

Emphasis is on social relevance.

Another major factor across social media is help in discovery.

These nominees were the best in my opinion in continuing the conversation, for a planet.

With these all nominees have been set.

Now it comes down to my final opinion.

And then to announce the winners, which will happen March 5th.
