I decided to try something new today and share how I got to where I am today in social media. Anyone who is willing to learn, put in the long hours, and do the hard work can achieve this too. In this post I will show you all my social networks as they are today and what my goals are for 2013. In Part 2 I will go over my 2013 goals for multiple revenue streams related to this. This is the start of a series that I will update at least monthly so stay tuned!

My journey started 1 year ago (Fall of 2011).
I had 9 Twitter followers and about 50 Facebook friends (mostly from high school and college days – sound familiar?). Pinterest was new, Instagram just a fluke, Google+ (huh?). What is this “FourSquare” thingy?
And my blog, PeterTrapasso.com was a nice piece of prime but undeveloped online real estate.
Fast forward to today; Now I have 20,000 Twitter Followers, 100% REAL (98% Active), engaged people too!
I am #194 Most Followed in San Francisco and #314,555 globally.
My recent TweetReach stats: Reach 238,045, Exposure 868,234 Impressions, 13 Retweets, and 6 @Replies
I have 0 FAKE ACCOUNTS out 20,000! All real people and 98% are active.
My 2013 GOAL: 100,000 Followers
My Social Scores are very high!
My klout score 73, I am a Thought Leader, and #113 Klout Influencer!
Kred is a competitor to Klout and probably #2 in social scoring. I just received an email from CEO Andrew Grill today. As you can see below, I am now a Kred Social Media VIP. I am not exactly sure what that means, but it sounds good. I assume that it puts me somewhere below Community Leader and Top Influencer. My score is 773 (out of 1000) for Influence. So far, so good.
PeerIndex rounds out the top 3 in social scoring. My score of 73 (out of 100) matches my Klout score and that makes sense to me.
Trustcloud is a beta service that I just joined. I believe that it is a measure of my trustworthiness based upon a scale of 1 to 1000. All I am waiting on is my Trustcloud postcard now.
89 out of 100 on Naymz = Elite Status!
