But first, how does Favikon rank influencers?

Favikon offers a reliable, data-driven approach to rank social media creators across various industries. This ranking is based on the Favikon score obtained by each creator according to their performance on social media. The Favikon authority score is not only linked to the number of subscribers, but is calculated according to several other important criteria. These criteria include maintaining an active presence on multiple social media, engagement rate, growth rate, as well as other factors that demonstrate the breadth and depth of their connection with their audience. We believe it's important to consider the holistic aspects of a creator's presence in order to get a complete assessment.
