UN Social 500 UN Social 500

Social Media Champions!

Dear UN Social 500 Players,

 

This month we saw the biggest climbs from Shannon O'Shea (up 211 places to 160th), Mark Cutts (up 156 places to 96th), and Carlos Islam (up 151 places to 371st). We were also happy to welcome new Player Asako Okai (242nd) to the UN Social 500 scorebook.

We saw a shuffle at the top with Roberto Valent now coming in the first place and then Achim Steiner and Kent Page following closely in second and third places. Indeed, congratulations to all Players who volunteer their time to share the work of the UN with the public! 

In our latest Social Diplomat series, Tarah Van De Wiele discusses an important study which debunks the importance of going viral. And Kealan Finnegan examines tweets across the United Nations with the July Digital News Recap.

Thanks for all that you do and have a wonderful August. I am looking forward to seeing if this dedicated team of UN Social 500 Players breaks the 3.4 million followers count in September!

 

Sincerely,

Simone Dominique
