Now, quality has become all important and, as a result, “influencers” are seen as a valuable and necessary asset. So how do you measure the online “influence” of someone? Is the focus on influencers valid? If so, what is their role and impact, and how should they be approached and embraced?<br />Business Panel<br />The Business of Apps with Kevin Restivo, Farhan Thawar and Ingrid Kelly How do companies approach the app-ication of the world?
