Review: High flying digital towns

In our review of the Digital Influence Index, we’ve identified some high-flying digital towns and cities across the UK.


The Digital Influence Index, from Maybe* ranks 1300 towns and cities in the UK, taking into account audience size, message volume and engagement that occurs across social media networks from a total of 150,000  high street businesses across the UK.
