The influence and outreach scores are provided by PeopleGraph and are based on Twitter accounts. If a prospect does not return a Twitter account, they will not have ratings. PeopleGraph also relies upon the service Kred.com to determine how trusted Twitter accounts are, how often the account's content is shared, and how large is the account's network.

The Social Media rating is based on a Target Analytics algorithm. Among other factors, the algorithm does consider the influence rating, outreach rating, and number of social media accounts returned.
