Socialcohol Media – for #Beer, #Wine and #Liquor lovers

Tagging along with previous analysis of social media Tribes and Influencers (here, here and there), we looked this time at the socialcohol ecosystem ;-).

Even if the wine & alcohol industry is highly restricted and social media has its set of challenges, matters like beer, wine and liquor generate quite a bit of conversations from the virtual streets.

Here, we pulled 200 influencers from our existing communities of English speaking influencers (~1500 for wine, ~1000 for beers and ~500 for liquor) to create our own cocktail of the tops.

Who’s who (i.e: the top 20):

All 3 communities stay separate though they are quite interconnected with each other. It’s interesting to observe that the ‘whiskey influencers’ (purple) act as a bridge between the 3.

Where are they (US only):

Beer (left): Higher density in the mid-west/colorado compared to wine and liquor. Colorado is a major beer state.
Wine (right): Along the coasts, low density in the midwest/mountain states. It mimics the producer/consumer paradigm for wine.
Liquor (bottom): Along the coasts in urban locations. May be an influence of the night life difference between cities and countryside.
