Ventura Among Top Social Cities, Says Report
An analysis of the most social-media savvy cities, released this week, ranked the City of Ventura as number 4 in its list of cities with the most social companies, based on the social media usage of business people. According to NetProspex, a provider of business contact information, its analysis found that Ventura was fourth out of the top 25 social cities, behind San Francisco, San Jose, and New York. Ventura was tied with Austin, Texas for the position. Los Angeles and San Diego tied at 15 (along with Minneapolis-St. Paul, Bridgeport CT, and Philadelphia), with Orange County at number 20, tied with Newark NJ, Washington DC, Boulder CO, and Raleigh NC. NetProspex based its ranking on the number of employees with registered profiles on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook in those cities, plus their social connections.
