Any idea as to how linkedin determined its "influencer" cohort

They enabled a long form posting but they gave preferential placement to a select 500 people is my understanding.  All the usual public personalities that have PR firms doing the posting thus it seems contrary to the open competition of social media.

Hi Ray, after doing additional research, there are ways through larger LinkedIn relationships, think Universities, companies, where I believe LinkedIn will designate individuals as influencers. This is because they constantly review the list each year and update as needed.
