Top 40 Gamification Gurus – July 2013

These are the top 40 Gamification Gurus based on their social media performance during June 2013.

Mario holds firm at number one while Gabe slips another spot to Andrzej. Rajat (who released his Loyalty 3.0 book in a fanfare of over 300 tweets!) stays in at tenth.

A good month for Ovum’s Carter Lusher who jumped to 13th from 122 and for Jesse Leahy a new entrant straight in at 14th.  We also welcome Oscar Panella, Ivan Kuo and Kabir Ahmed to the gurus list.

To view the details of individual scores head over to http://www.leaderboarded.com/gurus. If you’d like to read the back story behind gurus read my article on Gamification.co published last week. If you want to join the gurus then sign up at http://bit.ly/iamagameguru. If you want to do better then sign in and connect your social networks to your profile  at https://www.leaderboarded.com/player/signin/4

Now here’s that list. Thanks for playing and teaching the world the power of gamification…
