January Power User list features top 20 in crowdsourcing project

By Digital Journal Staff.
In Q4 of 2011,
Digital Journal launched a massive gamification project
that tracks and reports activity of contributors on Digital Journal. Recording actions such as quantity of articles published, frequency of visit and how engaged members are, Digital Journal rewards points and badges to individual contributors based on the amount of their activity. The members who stay the most active in the month are then rewarded with a "Power Users" badge.
In addition to creating incentive for contributors to participate in the social news network, Digital Journal aims to showcase talent and create a level of transparency that gives an open look at how people interact with a news organization and how user-generated content is valuable in the wider news ecosystem.
's gamification project has completely changed how people view media across our network, and how everyday people contribute," said
, CEO, Digital Journal. "Month over month we have seen increases in unique visitors and pageviews. The launch of our gamification platform has given back in spades, and everyone across the board is benefiting by complete transparency and in-depth reporting of data."
In no particular order, Digital Journal's January 2012 Power Users include:
Elizabeth Cunningham Perkins
Igor I. Solar
Kim I. Hartman
Digital Journal compiles data on a monthly basis and resets the points at the beginning of each month when a new competition begins.
