Over the past several years, TIME Magazine has reported the top 25 most influential people on the Internet. Using a different metric system than IZEA, TIME compared these contenders by their global impact on social media as well as their overall ability to drive the news. According to these metrics, women have been 11 of the top 25 both in 2017 and 2018, but women lost the top spot this year. In 2017, Chrissy Teigen nabbed the top spot according to TIME magazine, but in 2018 the top spot goes to Korean boy band BTS. TIME’s 2018 list contained 11 women, 2 man/woman couples, 3 groups including the powerful #BabaeAko (I Am Woman) movement in Manila, 1 precocious toy reviewing young boy, and 8 men as the 25 top influencers on the internet.
